Monster Bugger

Wooly Buggers are probably the most commonly used streamer ever created. They are also very versatile and can be used for almost all species of fish. From freshwater fish like trout, bass and crappie to even saltwater fish like surf perch, striper, and even sea trout, this fly will work for them all. I have personally fished woolly buggers in rivers, lakes, ocean surf, and in bays. Ive also fished the wooly bugger in California, New mexico, Colorado, and Texas with great success. But these will work throughout the world.

This variation replaces the hackle with rubber legs. This gives the fly a bit more movement, and makes it look a little more interesting. I probably have the best luck with bass on this imitation, but I have caught my fair share of trout, redfish, and striper on this exact pattern.
