Default Re: Black and Olive Wooly Bugger Representation

Buggers are a good all-around, generic imitation of a lot of trout foods- hellgrammites, crayfish, leeches. As Chris said, they represent food, or maybe not- perhaps they irritate the fish into striking. Either way, they work

The shake floatant was likely silica powder, as already stated. It works for a while, but after a half dozen casts or after hooking a fish, you'll need to re-apply, in my experience.
