i liket he wooly worm too another tip to weighting a bugger is to use lead eyes and you can even add claws and peacock herl to a big brown or olive bugger and use it as a crayfish....versatility is the name of the game with wooly buggers

Instead of adding lead to the fly I tie them with coneheads or big beadheads. Then if I need more weight I'll add it to my leader. I have had the most success with black with a black conehead, but have also had good luck with olive and brown.

Another trick to try is to get some glass or plastic beads and add them to the tippet before you tie on the bugger. It adds a little weight and also a little more action to the fly.

I've been trying them lately. I tied a few myself, bought both weighted and unweighted. I found casting the weighted difficult. 9' 7wt, 8' 2X leader, 6lb mono 12" - 18"tippet. I need to get PROPER tippet material for weighted flies. I'm fishing creeks and the D from Riegelsville downstream for smallmouth.

Keith... Try cutting down on the leader length unless you're dead drifting them and want your bugger to sink. If you're stripping them, a 4 foot section of 10lb mono or 2x tippet will work much better than a 8 foot leader+tippet.

Thanks, bam. I'll write that down so my feeble mind might retain it.
