Baby Brown Woolly Bugger Var. by Ryan Keyes

This is a cool Woolly Bugger variation from Ryan Keyes, sort of resembling a Bow River Bugger, but uses a soft flowing collar of squirrel. The pattern is a thick and meaty streamer that is sure to raise the ire of thick shouldered rainbows, scared cutthroats and ancient golden browns.

Tail: Tan and brown marabou with a couple strands of Rootbeer crystal flash
