Just finished up some bass flies. They are hybrid of three different patterns I tie. I just tied these eight up, if they work I'll tie some more.

Beadhead-Olive-Wooly-Bugger-1080.jpg


Beadhead Olive & Black Wooly Bugger

Hook - Mustad 9671, 9672 or equivalent
Bead - Your choice of color & texture in brass or tungsten
Weight - Lead/lead free wire
Thread - Black or your favorite color
Tail - Olive marabou and olive krystal flash
Ribbing - Gold wire
Body - Olive chenille
Hackle - Black saddle

I choose hackle that is between 1 to 1 1/2 the hook gape.

I tied the hackle in behind the bead after the chenille body was finished. Then the hackle was wrapped to the bend of the hook and tied down with the wire. The wire was then wrapped forward through the hackle and tied off behind the bead.

I personally do not like the popular too much "junk in the trunk" marabou tail. Sparse is okay with ME!

Use orange thread behind the bead for a hot spot.

Tie in different color combinations. Be creative! Experiment!
