Hey Guys,
They were everywhere along that bank this evening. My wife and I started
fishing at around 6pm, and at one point we couldn't leave the fly dangling
in the water: they'd take it 3 feet from the edge...LOL!!!

Here's a really nice Wooly Bugger How To video: YouTube - STS Bugger - Woolly Bugger Fly Pattern I tie mine
with bead chain eyes, a gold bead, or nothing but a whip-finished head. I
do tie the last few wraps of hackle back as shown in the video link.

P.S. I don't use very long hooks for wolly buggers now. Pretty much all of the buggers I tie are done on a
2x hook, size #10 and #12. I had a 24" LMB take a #10 wooly bugger a couple months ago (I've circulated
the pic all over this forum ), and feel that it does less damage to the fish than the more commonly used 3X
and 4X buggers. I was using a 7' 6" wt rod today, and it was windy. The smaller bugger was a breeze to
cast as well. It's been my "Go-To" fly for a couple years now......

Wat to go, Frank! Everything is good on a light flyrod........ even crappies.
I'm just starting to fish the warm water spots myself. I'll give the trout a rest for awhile.

Lake Luxemburg is correct !

The crappie are a lot of fun, but the medium-sized crappie seem to fight the
hardest. There are trout being caught in that very spot, but they're
being caught on Powerbait fished close to the bottom (about 15 feet deep)
and out much further than the crappie. I grew up near that lake, and used to
avoid fishing for the stocked trout. My preference is for native fish, but I began fishing that lake for stocked trout a couple years ago. This year's
trout effort there has been less than before, and I'm targeting the crappie
and bass. The funny thing is, most of the fishermen I see there are grocery
shopping for trout, and throw all the crappie back....

The buggers will definitely catch fish. I'd wrap still further towards the bend when tying in the marabou, chenille and hackle. It also helps to add in a wire rib over the hackle so the whole thing doesn't come undone if the hackle stem breaks. Wind the wire from back to front, making sure to wrap the opposite direction the hackle went, so its intersecting the hackle stem.

Also, use those beadheads on the buggers too. Beadhead buggers work really well on any fish that will hit a marabou jig. (crappie, sunfish, etc.)
