Hello MCC and welcome to the group,

In some states Woolly Buggers are considered a controlled substance because of their intoxicating effect on trout. You should check to be sure you are not falling under this jurisdiction. Otherwise........ heck tie one on they work everywhere.

I fish the Frying Pan in Basalt, Colorado in the heart of -10 winter days.....a black or white bugger is my go to fly when all others are losing fish due to their 7X tippets and midges...I go with 2X and a # 2 long shank buggers...Big fish .....and I get laughed at alot.....but I'm getting the last laugh

It's a sin not to have Woolies. I'll leave it at that.

Seems like every fish I caught in the month of December was on a Woolly Bugger. I like to tie it all black with brown hackle. Works like a charm. Sometimes I put a small split shot right at the end of the line, next to the eye of the hook; gives it some pretty good action in the water.

another good trick is to put a tungston bead on the leader prior to tying on. Really gives great action and does not pinch your leader. works similar to a texas rig in bass fishing.
