Black & Brown Woolly Bugger w/ Side Flash & Ribbing (SwittersB)

This is a straight forward Woolly Bugger, but the part I want to highlight is the use of side flash on the Bugger, which extends back into the tail. (Whew, long sentence). Also, a copper wire ribbing was used to weave around the fly to secure the side flash and the palmered hackle. These options provide lateral flash in the right water clarity conditions and a reinforcement of the fly’s hackle.
