My cousin caught a pretty big cat today on a black beadhead bugger! he also caught a bluegill. it was pretty slow tho. the copper john worked too on a rock bass. i got a tangle and caught my thumb with the damn wooly bugger so hard it broke off the line. now i don't know why but i didn't feel it and it was past the barb! i pulled and pulled and couldn't get the damn thing out! grabbed the foreceps and pulled with all alot of strength and pop it out ! ouch! that wasn't a fun experience.
