Default Re: Wooly Bugger Swap - the Flies / Part 1

Hi everyone . I left out one thing on the recipe for the catching up bugger.
The 8 amp lead wire is tied down along the top of the hook. This usually flips the bugger over so it rides hook up.
Pocono, you're the best. Thanks for running a great swap

Neil
