The albino version of the Woolly Bugger

Coney Snowbugger

This streamer fly is actually a variation of the well-known Woolly Bugger. It imitates a small baitfish.

Additonal weight can be added to this fly by wrapping leadwire on the
shank of the hook.
This fly can also be tied in a lighter version by replacing the Fly Head
by Sparkle Dubbing Brush Silver.
