Default Re: Tying Buggers

Very nice peacock bugger indeed.

I frequently tie buggers with wrapped flashabou for the body. Most anything fuzzy or fluffy impedes the sink rate of a given fly, and chenille is inherently more fuzzy than flashabou. If you plan it right, you can tie in flash on both sides of the tail, and using full strands of flashabou, have enough for the body as well.

Some of my favorite color combos-

Blue flash with black hackle and tail
Chartreuse flash with olive hackle and tail
Silver holo with grey
Gold holo with tan

Side note, since you don't have the chenille protecting the hackle stem, its absolutely vital to add a wire rib on these mylar wrapped buggers.
