Default Re: Wooly buggers

I tend to agree with each answer you have received. Wooly Buggers will catch almost anything that swims. Did any of the Wooly Buggers have different color heads, other than a bead head ? ( Let's say pink or orange ) This type are supposed to mimick egg sucking leechs, good for steelehead. This particular fly is meant to go down towards the bottom, so a slow stripping retrieve works best. ( as stated in another response ) I have even seen these flies basically tied upside down so the hook itself is facing up so as not to snag as easily on rocks or debris. Great all around bait, best colors are usually black or olive here in West Michigan.
