Odd, I never gave my 2c here?

My favourite colour is peacock herl. Not peacock chenille, ice dubbing (which works), or any sub, but the actual herls.

These are the only buggers that seem to work for me, although I don't test very often and bother with anything but anymore, so that whole faith in your fly thing applys.

I've seen some pretty interesting variations on the bugger lately, like the shellback idea up there, but using swords or herl in the tail then pulling over THEN palmering, or the Whitlock 'Lectric Leech with pearl mylar down the sides and in a collar (which looks awesome).

I think Buggers are a good gateway drug to some other top notch streamers. I seldom fish buggers any more, but i throw an awful lot of meat. Buggers just got me in the door. The colors mentioned by some of the other Lads are spot on.

Is sink-tip required for proper streamer fishing? I've heard mixed opinions on this and am looking for more opinions on the matter.

If you're going on an all streamer run, I'd stick with a sink or intermediate tip if you plan on stripping. If you're fishing them slow, a sink tip can get you in trouble if your streamers are weighted.

I tie zonkers and articulated streamers but seem to come back to weighted rubber legged buggers by the end of the day. Faster to tie, sink better and seem to perform just as well.

W,
See PM.

Generally "it depends". Water type, etc.

I never understood the logic in fishing such small streamers though. (in reference to osprey's post about 4-14...) The smallest streamer in my meat box is like 4 inches, insert jokes now...

Hodge,

I've had good luck with olive streamers for trout on the little J (David will back me up on this). Try swinging them through a riffle as opposed to stripping in a slower pool.

bluewing...........i'm not sure a wooly bugger is a streamer , in the larger sizes i guess it's more like a streamer but the 14's are more like swimming nymphs , always referred to buggers as attractors.

A wooly bugger is whatever you want it to be. I feel the same way that Bluewing does though. I only really got started meat tossing over the summer but I dont understand a size 8-14 bugger anymore. I dont fish streamers for small fish, when I'm fishing for streamers I wanna catch big fish, so I fish big bugs. Size 2-4 with stringers and around 3.5 to 6in long. I think I'm going to start tying tube flies as well.

As for how to fish them check this out.


Not only does he tie a great fly he tells you how to fish it. Read/ watch anything you can from Kelly, I've learned alot from him.

Though known best for his streamer tactics, his nymphing video is very solid as well. Good stuff. He seems to get it and be willing to share it.

Yeah, his nymphing video is pretty good. He fished with split and an indicator (nothing wrong with this...), but his methods and explanition of the different rigs are in-depth. I like the right angle indicator setup for certain situations.

Not meaning to hijack but why do they call a green drake spinner a "coffin fly"? Are you folks that are fishing size 2 and 4 wooley buggers fishing for trout or smallies or salt?
