There are thousands of variants of the Wooly Bugger out there. Here is one more. I tie this one for sea trout. This pattern is essential in your box. This post is also a test using the ipad for photos. It’s not a real sbs, but I want to see if it works.
Tie in a good bunch of marabou. Adjust the lenght and tie in a piece of mono (thin). The mono will be used for securing the hackle later. I use mottled marabou for this one. Thread is red UNI.
Dub the body with dubbing of choice. I use uv ice dubbing here. Remember to leave room for the eyes in front. Tie in the bead chain eyes.
I presented this in one of my older posts. When I get my camera situation sorted I will do a sbs.
This is a swedish pattern created for high altitude fishing. The materials you need are squirrel and a hackle. It looks like a mess, but the fish will go crazy on summer evenings. I usually tie this in all natural colors.
Me and super-kid tying flies. He’s only five years old, but really interested. I am looking forward to teaching him the beautiful art of fly tying. Fly tying has been my favourite thing since the age of 10 and it never goes away. As I have mentioned in previous posts fly tying will teach you so much about fish, flies and wild life. Enough to last a lifetime. Can’t wait to go midge fishing for small brownies with this guy and his own flies on the leader…
