Although rarely seen, this is a close approximation to a Wooly Bugger when it hatches. Change color/size to suit your needs. Wierd that I found this on a UK site; didn't think they were in to foam stuff (must be a post-Brexit thing).

hook - Dai Riki 280. #6
thread - Uni 6/0 camel
tail - marabou brown
rib - Krystal Flash pearl
body - Haretron dubbing chocolate brown
wing/head - 2mm foam brown
legs - medium rubber cornsnake
indicator - 2mm foam orange

mash barb, start thread, tie in rib, wrap to point above point



measure (shank length) a clump of marabou; tie in/trim butts, cover with thread





dub thread/dub body to 2/3 mark





counterwrap rib; tie off/trim



dub head, finish at 2/3 mark



notch foam strip (gap width); measure (tip to bend), tie in, finish with thread at eye







pull foam forward, tie down



cross thread over top of foam to return to 2/3 mark; pull foam back and tie down





trim upper wing even with rear of body; notch tip



double legs and tie in on either side



tie in indicator



whip finish, SHHAN, trim legs/indicator









Regards,
Scott

Any recommendations for Wooley bugger spinners?
I'd sub a wing of poly yarn like Congo Hair for the rubber legs, tied in between the foam layers; possibly dub the body a bit thinner. It should float flush to the surface and fool even the most discerning trout.

Regards,
Scott
