Thread: Rubber Hackle Bugger

  1. #1

    Default Rubber Hackle Bugger

    Been working so much have not had the chance to fish with work , my son in football and i promised my daughter to take horseback riding this past weekend and it was a good time we had but it was hurting to ride by all that water and cast a fly.Well when i got home it was time to throw a few arrows at the old bag for bow season but i was itching to try and tie a bugger with this rubber hackle so just had to do it.
    here's the conehead one.

    The one without a conehead.

    Looks good, but i think it needs a regular hackle collar. Just my preference as the head collar/head area looks a bit bare....where did you get the rubber hackles?

    A guy who owns a shop near me tied one of these but it had a maribou tail. He said it's a killer smallie fly...and it is.
    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    Nice looking tie!!! For my waters I'd go thicker on the marabou tail and add a hackle or marabou collar.

    Agreed with everything above. Should have some killer movement in the water.

    You've tied a winner for the Sierras. That underbody looks like it has a little burnt orange (winner). One of the most prolific stillwater trout guys here ties all of his leechs/buggers very sparse. His biggest tie is a #10.

    I have to agree with Jimmie, that bugger looks like a killer! Keep us posted on how it fishes.
