Wooly Bugger Flies - 12 Pack
Wooly Bugger flies
I purchased a 12 pack in Black and Olive, Size 4 for bass fishing. I really like them, they look like they were tied by a master fly tier. They cast very well on #8 WF fly line with a 2X leader.I am just getting into fly fishing for bass using poppers, wooly buggers, and Clouser minnows. I have no doubt they will work on many species of fish in both fresh and saltwater.

THE go-to fly
When other flies aren't working, I always resort to a bugger. I even start with a bugger most of the time. These particular flies are pretty beefy, which is great . The trout and even bass love them. Landed a beautiful 18" Rainbow this past weekend on a stream up here in VT on one.

I'm hooked on them!
For anybody who goes after trout with spinfishing gear, this is the fly for you. I fish with size 12 and 10, and i have caught trout from 8 to 16 inches with them. I fish it under a 1 inch Bass pro Shops red and white bobber, about 2 or 3 feet ubder in deep pools. This past fall stocking I caught 31 rainbows, and 23 of them were on the wooly. You just want to reel it in slowly and sometimes let it drift in the current. I usually fish it in small streams about 10 to 20 feet wide, but I have caught fish in lakes too, using this method. But you'll want to position the bobber about 6 feet from the wooly. Remember slow presentation and light line, I prefer 2 lb flouro or 4 lb mono or 4lb flouro, but I have figured that an ultralight combo with berkley vanish 2 lb line works best. I'm also a fly fisherman, and the woolys do better with spinning gear than with fly fishing, well at least you catch more fish that way. Hope ya' have some good fishin', and catch a big one! Note: I stock up when on sale, because those trout just chew it apart.

Hooked two native Brown trout in Rock Creek next to French Camp using this fly within 15 minutes of each other. Trout jumped right out of the water to attack this fly. Worked well and look forward to testing them out again on my next trip.
