Hello MCC and welcome to the group,

In some states Woolly Buggers are considered a controlled substance because of their intoxicating effect on trout. You should check to be sure you are not falling under this jurisdiction. Otherwise........ heck tie one on they work everywhere.

It's a sin not to have Woolies. I'll leave it at that.

Seems like every fish I caught in the month of December was on a Woolly Bugger. I like to tie it all black with brown hackle. Works like a charm. Sometimes I put a small split shot right at the end of the line, next to the eye of the hook; gives it some pretty good action in the water.

another good trick is to put a tungston bead on the leader prior to tying on. Really gives great action and does not pinch your leader. works similar to a texas rig in bass fishing.

I really doubt there is anything which you can't catch on a wooly bugger of some color or variation of some sort. Hey, it's a wooly worm with a pony tail, that's all!

Yesterday, the hardest hits of the day were on buggers. Give a shot every time out.
