Default Re: Tying Buggers

I tie/fish "buggers" quite a bit... my favorite all around pattern is a Peacock Bugger, and I tie 'em as follows;

--Hook: Streamer, size 6-12
--Bead: standard brass bead, sized to hook
--Thread: Black, UTC 70
--Tail: Black Marabou
--Body: 6 strands of peacock herl (twisted into a rope)
--Hackle: dun (or grizzly) saddle hackle
--Ribbing: fine gold wire, counter wrapped

Very versatile fly... imitates a little bit of everything, and exactly nothing! Kills on dead drift or down and across.
