Wooly bugger (or worm) swap
 
At some point in time almost all freshwater fisherman use one of these patterns. They are simple to tie and effective. Yet almost everyone ties them differently.

How about it, is anyone interested in a wooly bugger swap?

SDHflyfisher 01-05-2004 05:30 PM

sure
now i have two more swaps to tie for

Great there is interest. For a due date how does February 14'th sound? I think there will be more people interested in this one so I'll set number of flys tied at seven. One fly will go to an auction to support the site and each participant will get six randomly assorted flys back. I'll Pm everyone my address next week.

SDHflyfisher 01-06-2004 10:26 PM

crap i already tied too many i tied ten earlier today figuring that there would be a few more people
i'll still send seven though i need some more of what i tied anyway
7 it is

SDHflyfisher 01-06-2004 10:29 PM

john i should have the midge flies out by then so i'll send my buggers with the midges if that is OK with you

John Desjardins 01-07-2004 09:35 AM

Sean, that will work fine. Please include a couple of stamps to send back the buggers.

SDHflyfisher 01-07-2004 04:33 PM

fredaevans 01-07-2004 09:03 PM

Actually, GOOD POINT for all. Re-mailing these can get a tad 'pricy' so toss in a couple of bucks to cover the 're-mail' cost.

too late i already put them inmy fly box just some brown buggers in size 4 with flash chennele (i never spell that right)

FrenchCreek 01-07-2004 09:24 PM

I'm in, for 6 flies.
Is this 6 W/buggers + 6 Bombers (as in deer hair Bombers?)

SDHflyfisher 01-07-2004 09:42 PM

ask john i don't know what he means by bombers
and it is 7 remember the auction fly
that's not a bad idea with the bombers though i have never tied one would love to give them a try and see others creations

John Desjardins 01-07-2004 10:43 PM

Good catch Pete. I meant wooly worms and my fingers typed bomber.

FrenchCreek 01-08-2004 11:18 AM

So for me that means;
Wooly buggers; they have long(er) and bushier tails and longer bodies..
Wooly worms; they are shorter wooly buggers without tails or with a very short and thin tail ?

This has always been a matter of debate with many others, so it would be interesting to hear what others have to say.
I've always wondered what to call a:
"bead headed or spun deer head or no particular head, rubberlegged or no legs, soft hackled or stiff hackled or reverse palmered forward bent hackle, dubbed body or chenille wrap, marabou tailed with or without Crystal Flash, with or without weighting", wooly something?

Anyway, I'll send some patterns that work for me and leave it to others to determine what they are!
