David's Bugger

It does not always have to be complicated to be effective - allmost quite the contrary. One of the most all-round flies has to be the classic Wooly Bugger which has fooled fish all over the world. In this video we have had a visit from the talented Swedish fly tyer and sea trout fisherman David Leijon, who ties his simple favorite fly to the search for coastal sea run brown trouts. The color choice can be superb for the days, when the water is clear and quiet and the traditional fluo colors can not trigger the fish to bite, the neutral fly can most often fool the fish.

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.
