Wooly buggers are a must to have in the box – the marabou and body hackle on this pattern gives it a lot of life that should trigger a hungry trout.

This is one of those: let’s make a lot of noise flies that are good to have available, it should trigger a reaction on the surface from any hungry trout. One thing I could have done better is to have a more slender body: there is a lot of dubbing on there now. I could should also have a thread-rib wound counter-hackle to fasten the hackle better.
As you can see in the next two pictures: this will create a very good profile on the surface. The amount of deer hair and hackle will also make this stick to the surface for a very long time.
