    Many ways to tie this fly, so lets see what you got or what you can do.

  5. If you want a good tutorial for a wooly bugger this is a great one. He has a few little tricks included which make for a nice looking fly. I tie them like this but I also like them to be more "messy" and I tie them with hen hackles.

  10. Beachmen, what are the beads and "internal" flash on your buggers.
  11. Those are just white beads. Like you would use for crons. And the flash is actually the body material. I use Ice Dub instead of chenille. And I brush it out.
  12. This one always produces something. Not to fancy but it works.

  13. I've had great luck with this one over the last couple years (not a true bugger but a nice change sometimes):

    Body: Red and Black Arizona Simiseal dubbing teased out with velcro
    Tail: Black Marabou
    Hackle: UV Red Guinea from Spirit River
