Woolly Buggers are traditional American streamers designs that originally had to imitate large dark stonefly nymphs, but they proved to be well-known as river and lake streamers with general use. Worldwide successful trout streamers tied in all sizes, colors and designs. It can be said that any streamer fly, which has a marabou tail, a longer body regularly palmered with a rooster or a hen feather can be called a Woolly Bugger! This simple concept can be enriched by using golden round or cone beads instead of a head, a variety of pearl tinsels in the tail, the chenilles in the body and various color alternatives.
Woolly Bugger is simply a timeless and very effective streamer fly pattern, so it would be a huge mistake to miss it in your streamer fly box!
