Perfect Woolly

With countless variations of this fly out in the wild, I’m always surprised to see new ones pop up. Raoul Kempkes ties a mean bugger, and Wow, talk about an organized box. A couple things I really like about this pattern is are the use of a dubbed body in place of the chenille and the use of chickabou. Chickabou is really much better suited than turkey marabou for the tails of leech patterns. Besides that, there are not a lot of grizzly turkeys around yet. Grizzly Turkey, now that would spawn some wicked marabou.

From the good folks at Global Fly Fisher and Raoul Kempkes, the Perfect Woolly.
