Default Re: What color is your bug?

I've always done best with an olive bugger, tied with either grizzy or brown
hackle. While I carry black buggers, I don't take them out unless the olive
buggers don't work. At that point, the black usually doesn't produce anything
either.

STS Bugger: I tied a few of those after seeing them on YouTube. They worked really well, and I tie all of my bugger hackle that way now.

Olive, black and white are the 3 colors I use most. I've been using white the most lately with good luck. Lots of shad in the river plus shad kill.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty cool way of tying in the hackle too. That "furry" collar really seems like it should add undulation to it motion. May I ask where you fished them (what part of the country)?

Southeast Pennsylvania is where I do 99.99% of my fishing.

Fulton county is as far east as I've fished in PA. I go north a lot, and out of State too. When I drive to Phili or the Beach I see a lot of nice looking water, just never wet a line there. Hmmm....that doesn't make much sense. i think I'll have to remedy that soon.

If you're ever in the Philly area, there's a really nice stretch of ff'ing only
(C&R only as well) on Ridley Creek, in Ridley Creek State Park. It's about
20 minutes from Center City, near Media, PA.

My wife and I drove to San Antonio to see our son at Lackland AFB in 2006,
and I had every intention of fishing along the way. We saw lots of great
water in Tennessee, but just didn't have the time to stop. When Jr was
assigned to Dover AFB, we drove down without any rods/reels. I did have my
vest in the car, and tied a leader to a long slender branch. While my wife and
son were skeptical at first, I caught a lot of nice fish along the banks of a
red hot pond!

Too cool...that is really doing it yourself!!! I will keep those in mind. I have "the complete stream map if PA" from the Fish Commission. If I look I'll bet I can find it. Thanks.
