Default Re: Woolly Bugger vs Woolly Worm

I also hackle the two differently; for me with WBs it's hackle fibers pointing back toward the tail, for WWs; particularly something like a small WW pattern, Griffith's Gnat, for example, it's hackle fibers pointing forward. I've found that a lot of WB/WW patterns are interchangeable. As Terry says, the choice of tail/tailess, depends on how you want to fish them; streamer or nymph. Personally, I agree with George, the WBs are more productive for me, too.
