Materials
HookVMC PS Streamer Hook: Size #6; for me the best saltwater streamer hook out there!
ThreadUTC Ultra Thread 140 Denier: A very good thread! Very tear-proof and there is a whole range of colors available (fits to the colors of Krystal Dub & Soft Hackle with Chickabou).
BeadI use 4 mm tungsten beads in various colors which weight and size fits great for my Woolly’s! They do not give too much weight but cause a nice jigging.
Tail and body hackleWhiting “Soft Hackle & Chickabou”: The Woolly Bugger I tie is definitely living from its materials. The “Soft Hackle & Chickabou” from Whiting is a quiet rare material but very economic and giving perfect results. The Chickabou replaces the Marabo
TailI use two strips of pearl colored Krystal Flash for the tail. Less is more!
BodyKrystal Dub: The Krystal Dub is used because it is a very fine natural (rabbit) dubbing with a minimum of shiny fibers. The small amount of fibers gives a nice little glimmer when the fly is brushed with Velcro after tying.
