Bruiser Bugger

Beef Up Your Bugger

Bruiser Buggers

The Wooly Bugger is probably the most popular fly on the planet, and it can be tied in about any configuration you can imagine.  I really like a heavily weighted bugger to fish in rivers, and you all hopefully have seen the complex twist bugger with it's large tungsten cone head.  The Bruiser Bugger was created just because I was addicted to throwing the new double pupil eyes on about every fly that came off my desk.  For my river buggers I like them big and bold - long tailed and thick headed dragons that move a lot, dive deep, and push water.  My stillwater buggers (for lakes) I like to make more like leeches - Shorter sparse tails, short hackle, and minimal weight.  The Bruiser Bugger is a pretty quick tie that really moves well and pushes water really well.  They will be a great addition to your streamer box.
