I am sure I am not the 1st to think of this! ok I have been having very good luck on black wooley buggers that I bought. instead of crystal flash they have 1 flashy green strips down each side. could it be flashabou? I need me some of whatever it is. seems to catch more than the regular crystal flash bugger my cousin used. the 2 times I used it I caught 11 rock bass with it. . well I wanted to come up with something a lil different than a normal bugger since it didn't seem so productive. so I made this. size 8 streamer hook, black marabou tail, copper rib, 8 strands of peacock for the body. I don't have black hackle yet for the bugger so I used some black partridge for a kind of hackle collar. I think it looks not bad except maybe the head is a lil to built up and the hackle not al the way to the front of it. also I used bigcliffs (from north american fly fishing forum) idea to tear the marabou shorter on the back instead of cut it so it still looks fluffy. (if you make the tail too long on accident.) cause it was too long kinda and I didn't wanna miss strikes.. other than that its really picks up alot of light and is very irridecent! hopefully will catch me some more bass! heres the pic! I would love to make this with the right hackle and some of that green mylar looking strips on both sides! what is that stuff?
