A Great All Purpose Fly


Wooly Bugger

The Wooly Bugger is an all purpose streamer that has proven itself effective on Bass, Panfish, Trout, and even saltwater species such as Drum and Redfish.  The Wooly Bugger can be tied as a bead head (pictured above), or with lead wire for weight instead of the bead.  The Wooly Bugger can also be tied with a marabou wing instead of palmered hackle, and be tied in any variety of colors including olive, black, white, brown, chartreuse and more.   Try a Wooly Bugger next time you're at your favorite Bass or Bream pond.
