The Woolly Bugger is a staple of Streamer fishing! A real “ Hall of Famer “ in the Streamer world.
We call it a gateway streamer and is addictive in its own right!
It works across species and from running water to lakes, it just inspires takes!
For those dipping their toes into streamer fishing, a selection of our Woolly Buggers are a great choice. Not as big as hardcore articulated streamers, easier to cast with lighter lines and such an established pattern it is easy to have confidence in.
While such a successful pattern, we have seen a lot of poor imitations. Those cheap Woolly Buggers on long shank hooks that look so dead in the water that only a necrophiliac trout would be interested in them. This one is dressed with a long whispy tail and lightly palmered Schlappen hackle and swims beautifully.
The patterns here at Impact fly fishing have much more “life” & action incorporated into them and you can tell the difference in the water and in the results they can bring.
Tied on high quality Gamakatsu hooks using quality materials, these are quality versions of a quality fly to either have as stock in your flybox or to start your streamer fishing odyssey.
Good ol black, ever on trend! Same goes here, a must have colour in a woolly bugger. There is much more than just black going on here in this version. This has a dubbed body, snazzy gold rib, rubber legs for kicking & super catchy crystal flash aside the marabou tail. Topping it off with a fun red nose! A conehead in bright red, a nice trigger point that attracts trout to this like bulls to the matador’s cape!
This must have in your Woolly Bugger collection.
