Woolly Bugger (Black)

A traditional black Woolly Bugger with extra weight added

Probably my best fly on the Susquehanna River. I tie them in black (hellgrammite or leech), brown (crayfish), and gray, usually weighted with lead wire or a bead or two. I like to use a rabbit strip as a tail for slower water. I think a Grey, Black or Copper Frede would translate very well here.
