    Default Tying the Green Wooly Bugger!

    Here is a very inspirational fly tier named Josh Williams from Dead Drift Flies demonstrating how to tie a Green Wooly Bugger. Joshua’s ability and passion is clear in this short clip and can serve as a true inspiration. I bet you can't tie like this!
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIhOGel9XAY&feature=player_embedded]Woolly Bugger Tutorial - YouTube[/ame]


    Here is a bit of background;
    “My name is Joshua Williams. I live in Virginia with my wife Lisa, our beautiful little Emma Jo, and our three labs. I joined the Army after high school and served as an Infantry automatic rifleman and squad leader, during which I was deployed to Iraq for 13 months. After I came back to Ft. Hood, Texas, I was involved in a major accident. A car pulled out in front of my motorcycle, and among other injuries, I lost my right arm. I was sent to Walter Reed for treatment and rehab. While there, I was introduced to Ed Nicholson, the president and founder of Project Healing Waters, and John Bass, a regional coordinator of Project Healing Waters. It was through them that I developed a passion for fly fishing. By teaching me how to fly fish, they introduced me to a new way of finding peace and tranquility. Fly fishing does more for me than any medicine on the market! I became an avid fly fisherman through Project Healing Waters and the wonderful comaraderie that comes with it. There’s nothing like catching a wild trout on a fly that I’ve tied. I began tying flies in 2008 and have become obsessed! Basically, if I’m hunting, fly fishing, or tying flies, I’m happy! God Bless!” -Josh

    You are probably correct, seeing how Rose River Farm sponsors PHW events.

    I don't know what to say: I'll think of him next time I get frustrated with a fly!

    Pretty inspirational, Josh definitely has definitely taken fly tying to a new level. When you sit back and think of how many of us would stick with it for two years to learn how to use a whip finisher.
