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.
