What size and where can I buy some woolies as I am not yet comfortable tying them without trying it first? Right now I predominately dead drift fish with floating line and although I can’t a lot of fish it is somewhat boring and doesn’t translate well to other streams.

Uh... are you referring to Wooly Worms and Wooly Buggers? They're among the most popular patterns, and among the easiest to tie.

Most good fly shops should carry a variety of colored wooly bugger's, but my go to Fly Shops are Creekside(Issaquah), Avid Angler(Lake Forest Park), or Reds Fly shop( out on the yak, but I buy online sometimes Red's Fly Shop - World's Most Complete Fly Fishing Shop (redsflyfishing.com). I usually fish size 6, 8 , or 10.

Have you tired streamer fishing with a sinking leader? They are designed to convert any floating line into an instantaneous sink tip. It really helps to get the bugger deeper in the water. I also tie an open loop knot to the end of the bugger so it has a lot more natural movement and swimming action.

Hey Natalie!
I can tie you some at a competitive price if you still are looking!
