Bow River Bugger

The Bow River Bugger is a great western streamer pattern. The Bow River Bugger can be fished both on the dead drift and also stripped as a streamer. The Bow River Bugger is a small minnow and/or sculpin imitation. The Bow River Bugger is a hybrid fly and is blend between a Woolly Bugger and Muddler Minnow. The pulsing action is mainly taken from the Woolly Bugger, while the wide and water pushing profile is taken from the Muddler Minnow. A great pattern in the West and a particular favorite for guides on large rives in Montana!

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.
