Wooly Bugger or Woolly Bugger, seen it spelled both ways all over the place.

I would call it the original Woolly Bugger. Olive & Black to me is the first one I ever saw. This would date to around 1977, I don't know when or by who the fly was originated.

HL Leonard had them in their '73 catalog. A choice of either all white or all black.
