Pete this is my definition
Buggers - 2 1/2 hook gape's or longer whispy tail of maribou or similiar material. Worm: short, less than hook gape, stiff tail of yarn or similiar material.

I'd call it a wooly bugger variant.

I'm forgetting to do my meistering duties.

In this swap are the following people.

SDHFlyFisher
Dewey
Fred Evans
FrenchCreek
and Myself

Any one else interested. These are easy flies to tie so don't be shy if your a beginner.

Pete, you don't need to tie both. One or the other is fine. And as you stated six flys total .

Man, you "Calgary Guys" ...

What can we "St. Boniface/Winnipeg Guys" say.

One up on your side.


Forgot to ask: with, or without, single malt?

Fred

Fred,
Holy Peat Water is the norm!
I'll bring some to the Feb.14-15 Clave and hope to meet up with you folks down there.
I also use this pattern in the early spring, some are tied with a black Bead head or a small black Cone head to help sink it and to have it "nosing" in slower water/pools.
