    Default first time out with a bugger

    well I got out today and tied on 2 wets and thought what can I use too get them down faster so on whent a big beadhead bugger. The first school of fish I came across were suprisingly intrested in this bugger and not the wets the main problem was I coulddnt hide myself well enough and kept spooking them as they were about too take , after a 4lb fish followed me across the river half a dozen times the wind took the cast into the willows and that was the end of my bugger and 4lb tippet, the fish in the L2 usuly wont take big flies at the end of the season as most of them have learnt there lesson by now, next season Ill be trying more buggers and trying again a nice way too end a season

    Ill tie some more and post a pic it was a magpie bugger white/grey
    (Magpie is pest like a big black bird but nasty)

    The great thing about the bugger is that just about every bugger variation will catch fish. For your late season fish, try tying some buggers with a thinner profile.

    Chris: Nice looking bugger, I'd like to hear how you do with a little slimmer profile as MP suggested. Keep us posted!
