Baby Complex Twist Bugger

Cheech - September , 2018

The Complex Twist Bugger has been one of my go-to flies for a long time because it just plain catches fish, but it also has some of the qualities that I look for when I'm loading up a streamer box such as durability and simplicity in tying. Several people have asked me why I don't tie it smaller than a size 2, and the answer is that it's hard to find good schlappen with smaller sized fibers. Well, it turns out that feathers with smaller fibers had been hiding right under my nose for a long time - hen saddles. They have the perfect size and taper to make smaller complex twist buggers, and are very affordable. As you will see in this video, not only do I use two different hen saddles, but I use a product called "spey chickabou" which is one of the very best marabou type products for small flies that I have used because it's so buggy. Let your imagination run wild with this one with variations and color combos. ~ Cheech
