Bloody Buggers (B.C. staple works anywhere)

The often forgotten option for Woolly Buggers is the maroon bodied leech pattern. Quite popular in B.C. lakes, it is less used to the South. I always tie and carry these flies, but not that many (maybe a couple dozen). When I look at this fly, in the selection process, I usually pass by it and pick something else. This week I heard that this fly was hugely popular with all available species of fish on a certain Central Oregon lake. So, now my curiosity is now peaked and I will have to give this pattern more attention. Actually, I will start with this as a point fly this coming weekend….followed by a Callibaetis nymph let’s say.    

 June 23, 2008 Update: I did start with the above Bugger and had zero hits. I tried it two times later and had no hits. I tried it alone (how I prefer to fish Bugger’s) and as the lead fly, ahead of nymphs. Still no hits…so the verdict is out on this fly for me. BUT, I do know flyfishers that swear by this pattern, especially a little smaller than my size 8’s above. They tie and fish size 10’s and 12’s in a mini-bugger style. I have not tried this, with this color. You might give it a try.
