Thread: Wapsi bugger chenille?

  1. #1

    Default Wapsi bugger chenille?

    What size of Wapsi Woolly Bugger chenille would you guys recommend for buggers tied on 3X long hooks in sizes 8 and 10? I was thinking about using medium because I've always used medium chenille and didn't have any issues, but I was wondering if smaller would be better since this chenille is a little more bulky.

    Small size works just fine.

    I use medium on my 4 and 6, I agree small on 8 to 10.

    Thanks for the info folks, it never occurred to think about different size chenille! I have been using medium on everything but that is fixing to change.

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
