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.

Hook: 3xl – 4xl streamer hook #2-#8
Thread: Brown #6/0
Weight: Lead or non-lead sub
Tail: Tan and brown marabou with a couple strands of Rootbeer crystal flash
Body: Sand SLF Prism dubbing
Rib: Brown Ultra-wire
Hackle: Dark barred ginger hackle
Collar: Tan pine squirrel
Head: Conehead tungsten or brass

I first seen this Doug McKnight pattern in Montana Fly Fishing magazine in mid 2012. You can buy a tying kit for the pattern from In The Riffle. This looks like a killer pattern for pike and bass as well as the intended big trout.

Eyes: Large Red Painted Dumb Bell Eyes
Thread: Olive UTC 140
Tail: Brown Woolly Bugger Marabou
Collar: Tan Arctic Fox Tail Hair

DFL Step by Step by Dave Hosler

Dave over at Pilecast.net has put together a nice little step by step of his latest slab catcher, the DFL. This has a great looking profile and a nice dark lateral line down the middle. Dave ties this up in classic Clouser chartreuse and white. You can check out the step by step and Dave’s write-up on the pattern. This should play well with a number of species like bass, pike and browns. Happy Tying.
