last summer i fished for bass using a brown bugger. the bass liked it so much the hackle got tore off. guess what? they still ate it!! so what I did was add beadchain eyes instead of beadhead so it ride hook point up and just add this "wooly bugger" chenille instead of the hackle for a somewhat buggy effect. should work great! got this buggy chenille stuff in olive and black! it also has small pieces of flash in it.
