Im a plain old black wooley bugger type of guy....tie them with black marabou (in a size 6 or 8) with not too much flash in the tail and a wire wrapped body with black hackle. sometimes i tie a tungsten bead head up front. when i fish for browns in rivers i go a little larger, and sometimes add rubber legs, but for the most part its the same. the action you give it is the key, you want that thing moving along fairly well most of the time--- kind of like a darting baitfish trying to get away from a predator. 8 or 10 inch strips are about my norm, but vary your retrieve speed until you find what they want. I love fishing them, and when you get a fish on it there is usually no mistaking it...they really hit it hard and stop it in its tracks.TaylinLoop said:Rottal,
Any "wollybugger" your favorite (color, size, flash, weighted) for Spinney? I'm just getting started with this stillwater stuff. I'm also looking for float tube reviews. I've heard good things about the "Super Fat Cat"
Hmmm..... interesting pattern..... indicates a long life and good health, with a marriage in your future.... no artistic talent whatsoever....Rottal said:Heres a larger pattern i use for early spring runoff browns and also night fishing...it moves plenty of water.
