Wooly Bugger

The internet is not short of wooly bugger videos, however I figured I would show a few extra techniques like dubbing a body and what type of feathers I like to use. I also added some lead to the body to give it a little weight and allow it to sink slightly. Now, wooly buggers are so versatile that they can mimic so many different things. From damsel fly nymphs, to bait fish, to crayfish, and leeches. Also they can be fished like streamers, or even nymphs. I have been known to put one of these as my lead fly, below an indicator, and fish it in a river just like a nymph. Does very well that way. Also fishing these like streamers, either stripping them in, dead drifting or swinging in rivers works really well. They can be fished in lakes as well, and in even saltwater situations. A very effective and versatile fly.

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.
