Fly Tying Kit – Wooly Bugger



Want to tie exactly what you need at very low cost, or try out a new fly, without buying more expensive materials than you need? Then try our “just enough” fly tying material kits!

This kit includes materials for a Wooly Bugger (also known as Woolly Bugger). A proven and popular pattern, it works well in streams and lakes alike, for trout, bass, and panfish.  Also, when tied with an egg-head and sometimes with rubber legs, it is also effective for salmon and steelhead.
