I learned a woolly bugger variant from Carl Richards, author of the book "Selective Trout". Carl said it was the most effective wet fly he ever fished, he personally fished this fly extensively.

The fly is called a Chicago Leech. It's a very simple pattern. It's a beadhead tied entirely using mohair yarn. The sparser the tie, the better it works. Smaller sizes, about a size #10 all black seem especially effective. The sparse small fly works very well in the colder weather.

The only thing is, for some reason mohair works better than any other fibers.
