Re: Wolly Buggers?
Buggers are perhaps the most versatile fly ever made. if your fishing for trout it would double your chances if you used a dropper fly. the most conventional way to use a dropper on a woolly bugger is to tie it off of the back. another way to set up a two fly rig for a woolly is to put the smaller fly (nymph) on first with the bugger trailing it. this simulates a small bait fish chasing a swimming nymph or smaller bait fish. I learned this tactic on the hiwassee in tennessee and it has worked all over the place.
