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!
