Default Re: Do you Woolly Bugger?

Eunan, you'll like this

When Don Bastain spoke at our club over the winter he mentioned numerous times fishing for Maine brook trout and land locked salmon with both a gray ghost bugger and a gray and white bugger. Not that buggers are hard to figure out, but I couldn't picture a gray ghost so I wrote him about it.
Here's what he said:

Glad you enjoyed my presentations & tying. Thanks for your message. I
decided to send this direct to you, and I'll get the Gray Ghost Bugger
posted on the blog at a later date.
