Woolly Bugger (yellow as an option)

Yellow Bugger~G. Muncy

Yellow Bugger~G. Muncy

How often do you consider tying a yellow nymph or subsurface pattern like the Woolly Bugger? For the most part, we adhere to the proven earth tones of green, brown and black. In B.C. there are the maroon and claret patterns.  One can find a few orange patterns.  A few years ago, on Oregon’s Hosmer Lake, I was introduced to yellow as a stimulating color for Atlantic’s and Brookies. Since then, yellow buggers are part of my arsenal. I admit that I don’t remember to use them enough, but a friend of mine, Al Vavra, is a staunch yellow bugger slinger. This pattern is deadly on Brown Trout. Yellow Buggers are his go to fly and he is very successful on lakes. The pattern above is a standard Woolly Bugger tie with yellow marabou tail with a few strands of Krystal Flash in the tail. Size 8 with the gold bead head.
