Flaming Hemorrhoid Bugger

This articulated or stinger hooked Wooly Bugger pattern uses a short hook in the back strung with a couple 8mm trout beads. The short hooks help with overcoming the leverage effects longer hooks can have and will reduce the number of hook throws.

I like to use fox hair on occasion in place of the marabou as it gives the fly a little more durability, and is a little thicker when compressed in the water

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.
