How don't you fish a wooly bugger?
Or how do you spell
As mentioned briefly above, a Wooly also works as a jig.
I fish them in deep plunge pools (fast water) with a split shot. Sometimes it takes a pretty big weight; other times just tiny one. Usually I try the split shot close to the fly, because it's easier to work. But I try it 6-8" up the line if at first I don't succeed.
