Crystal Bugger

Wooly buggers are probably one of the most popular and versatile streamer patterns ever tied. They are effective on such a wide variety of fish, from freshwater to even saltwater, warm water to cold water. Almost every fly fisherman has a few wooly buggers in their box. The Crystal Bugger is a variant of the wooly bugger, and it is a bit more flashy. It uses a flashy type chenille to attract fish in more dirty water.

Here is a list of materials I used on the fly
Hook: Dai-Riki 700 size 8
Thread: Veevus Power Thread 140 in white
Tail: White Bugger Marabou
Tail Flash: Pearl Crystal Flash
Wire: Silver UTC Ultra Wire in Small
Hook Wrap: Pearl Estaz
Feather: Grizzly Hackle

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
