Default Simi Seal

Is anyone tying Simi Seal Buggers? What are your favorite colors of Simi Seal for trout?

I am. I like the Golden Olive for Damsels and I like a black/blood mix for leeches and of course the Golden Browns. Cool stuff, but I use it with a dubbing loop.

In AZ they are the new Wooly Bugger.

Tied big or small (AZFF sells magnum Simi Seal), sparse or full, weighted or not, stripped fast like a minnow, slow like a leach, or drug on the bottom like a crawdad, bass, trout, or panfish, AZ Fly Fishermen don't leave home without SSLs.

A newer pattern that I got in a fly swap and I'm now tying because I love it is the Soft Hackle Simi Seal Leech (SHSSL)

Thanks mudbug. I love your SHSSL. It's either Dark Olive or Peacock is my guess.
It won't be long the SSL could rule everywhere. At our latest outing the most and biggest trout were caught on SSL's.

Dont think I have heard of simiseal over this side of the pond. Is it a synthetic seals fur sub? Might have to try and get hold of some as those flies look pretty awesome, loving the soft hackle, have a nice dark olive partridge on my bench that would look good at the fron of one of those.

Anything touted as the be-all, catch-all is something I want to try out! I'm going to need the morale boost when I finally get out there with my fly rod

There is just so many colors in this dubbing, it really does cool things.

Down here in Central Florida my main target fish are LM Bass and Bluegills. I understand the colors for bugger type flies for them are black and olive. Is that what would be recommended for this product?

Thanks.
