Re: How do you fish a wolly booger?
I fish for trout mostly in smaller waters. Two techniques I have found to be most productive are "Keep Away" and sort of a wet fly swing or tensioned dead drift with sudden twitches and random brief moments of slack - sort of like something following the current looking for food.
"Keep Away" is blind fishing. Present the buggger sort of close to some kind of structure, let the fly drift in a little closer (giving it time to sink), then strip it back it and make it swim like it is swimming for it's life. (Trout swim a lot faster than I can strip line.) Sort of a variant in "induced take'.
I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
