For the second installment of his Facebook Live series “Tying with Tom,” we worked out all the technical difficulties, and Tom demonstrated how to tie two versions of Russell Blessing’s Woolly Bugger. We will be doing these events every MWF at 3 p.m. Eastern, so keep an eye on here, as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Here’s the recipe, if you want to tie along:
Tunghead Woolly Bugger
Hook: 4X-Long streamer hook, sizes 6 through 10.
Cone: Black tungsten Cone, appropriate to hook size.
Thread: Black, 6/0.
Tail: Black Marabou.
Flash (optional): Pearlescent Krystal Flash.
Body: Black chenille, medium.
Hackle: Black saddle hackle or Woolly Bugger Hackle.
Note: You can tie this pattern in any color or combinations of colors that appeal to you. If you don’t have cones, you can use a heavy bead at the front.
