Wooly Buggers are arguably one of the most effective fly patterns ever invented, and the Crystal Wooly Bugger variation works equally well, if not better! This is a great pattern for beginning tyers to learn as well. This pattern works for just about every species that swims, and can be adapted to different colors and sizes easily. Don't be caught without a few Crystal Wooly Buggers next time you go out!
