HOW TO TIE A WOOLY BUGGER
You don't need to read this. You know how to tie a wooly bugger. It was one of the first flies you learned to tie, right? You tie in a tail of marabou, a saddle hackle and a length of chenille at the rear of the hook. Bring the thread and then the chenille to the head. Palmer the hackle forward and tie off. Finish the head and cut the thread. Head cement, tinsel and wire ribs are all options but that's the basic wooly bugger.
