Default Salamander Bugger

In response to a post on another Board, I worked this up as a sort of rough Salamander.
The fly is really just a Bow River Bugger with rubber legs.

Hook: Mustad 79580 #2
Body: Brown Bugger Chenille
Tail: Brown Marabou with two strands of multi colour Crystal Flash
Hackle: Large Cree saddle
Rib: Fine copper ultra wire
Head: Brown deer body hair
Legs: Twin strands of round rubber hackle knotted to form feet.

I have a particular place in mind for it this year. I will indeed let you know how it fishes.

Thanks guys, please feel free to copy it. I will do a step-by-step tomorrow for you, though it is pretty simple. I do not have small mouth anywhere near me, my apologies. This is going after Brown Trout this spring. I think I would fish this right up in the surface or on a sinking tip line with a leader light enough to let it flaot up between strips. Perhaps a black conehead on a couple.

Nice salamander pattern, Kerry.

I particularly like the head-on view. Looks a lot like the real thing to me. My bet is that the fish will see it the same way.

If you need an Eastern trial to go with your Western trial, then I know someone who'd be willing to fish that pattern for you.
