Bruiser Bugger by Fly Fish Food

The Bruiser Bugger is the latest creation from Cheech and Curtis of Fly Fish Food. The pattern is fairly straight forward and incorporates elements from some of the hundreds of Woolly Bugger variations that have evolved since it’s inception by Russel Blessing (1935-2009) as a bass fly.

Silicone legs are one of my new favourite materials to tie with and I’ve replaced all of my rubber leg materials with them. Rubber tends to deteriorate in a short time, so if you have a habit of tying in bulk and stocking your box, by the time you get around to fishing with the rubber legged flies, the rubber may be brittle. I’ve had this happen in a few months in the past and more or less stopped using rubber.

And I almost forgot, be sure to mark up the fly so you don’t miss out on that extra 37% catch rate.
