Black Woolly Bugger

Henry Ford once said about the color of his first carmodel (the Ford Model T) that the customers could have “any color so long as it is black”. The same could be said about the color of one of the most all-round flies ever tied: The Wooly Bugger. A must have fly in every flyfishers box is a black Wooly Bugger. In this video we have the skilled danish fly-tier and fisherman Martin Votborg from #MinFlue behind the vice, tying his version of the all-time classic pattern, in a sligthly modified version - but still black.

The Black Wooly Bugger:
Hook: Ahrex HR418 WD Bomber Hook
Thread: Black
Tail: Black marabou with Pale Olive Angel Hair in between
Body: Salmo Sureme Peacock
“Hackle” Dubbingloop with Salmo Supreme Peacock in the strands and black marabou between the strands

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.
