In this fly tying tutorial, fun is definitely the name of the game! Through a forum dedicated to fly tying, known as the Fly Tying Forum (link below), a thread was started related to your favorite football team coupled with fly tying. Put that pair together, and my pattern emerged as the "Steeler Bugger!"
For starters, this woolly bugger is definitely just a fun pattern, being that I've never fished it (yet!). I wanted to focus on black and gold colors, as my team is known for. Basically, I wanted a fly that had the potential to catch some fish, represent my hometown team (the Pittsburgh Steelers) and play along with the forum fun...hence the "Steeler Bugger."
