MS Bugger

When it comes to successful patterns, sometimes less is more, and it sure seems that way on the MS Bugger. This is a pattern with few materials, yet has an incredible look both at the vise and in the water. On the water, there are many ways to fish the MS Bugger, and the trout seem to like them all!

Featured in this video are the S40BL hooks from Allen Fly Fishing. You can find those hooks and many others at the following link:

The MS Bugger dubbing can be found at the Fly Tyer's Dungeon:

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.
