The Basic Bugger is a twist on one of the most recognizable, and likely one of the most commonly fished streamers in the world, the Woolly Bugger.  This version imitates baitfish, minnows, sculpins, and leeches.  This twist on a fly fishing classic fishes well in tailwaters, freestones and lakes alike.  Since we have added this fly to our Tailwater Junkie assortment it has become one of the most-loved patterns on our website.  The bugger has a profile that breathes life, making it irresistible to trout.

Fishing Strategy:

Minnows, baitfish, and leeches provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one.  In most cases, we fish a Basic Bugger with a sinking line.  We suggest a down and across delivery.  We have found that a quick, short retrieve provides the best results.

Although, we have found that a quick, short retrieve provides the best results.  But, don’t be afraid to think outside the box from time to time and mix things up with a slower retrieve or a dead-drift presentation.  Whether you are swinging it, stripping it, or dead-drifting it in smaller sizes the Basic Bugger is a must-have and deserves a spot in any angler’s streamer arsenal.
