Default Re: Wooly Bugger or Crayfish fly?

There's a very good article by Dave Whitlock in this month's Flyfishing & Tying Journal that's very much worth a read.

One of my favorite patterns is a black & olive bugger. I usually tie them with a black tail, olive body and black hackle. It's also worth tying some with both black and olive marabou in the tail. I like to add flash and a conehead to them but I don't think you could go wrong with eyes either.
