Woolly Bugger (Claret Is My Jinx Color) Can They Even See It??

Claret Bugger~Unrequieted Love, SwittersB

Claret Bugger~Unrequited Love, SwittersB

Woolly Buggers. A proven pattern in black, green, brown, yellow, and claret. Claret? Always a recommendation. Listen to a Chan. Listen to my accomplished stillwater friends. ‘What did you catch it on?’ “A maroon bugger’. Maroon, Burgundy, Claret no matter, the darn color does not work for me. I fish it like a bugger, not some bloodworm. Nothing. I always have a half dozen with me. Again, a proven color. Not for me.Why? Not sure. I have given it a fair try many times from B.C. to Oregon. Not one damn fish. Big, small, standard Bugger, or dubbed…the color fails me.  Can they see it? It moves and waves…it satisfies my impressionistic code. Impossible my friends say. You aren’t fishing it right. I fish it like I fish black, or green. Nada. Bizarre. It will remain in the box because sure as hell I will need it someday.   

Notice the above pattern for one detail, which no fish has thus far tested in this color, the reinforcing rib is wound up through the hackles to lend support to the palmered hackle should the fish teeth tatter the poor offering. No way in hell with claret….but of value in productive colors. 

Trout Vision may be the culprit…that gap in their vision. Maybe I do have to use a scent attractant?
