An adaptation of a true classic, the Tungsten Jig Wooly Bugger Streamer is a fly that gives on-the-water versatility like few others. Very similar in design to Russell Blessing’s Wooly Bugger, the Tungsten Jig Wooly Bugger Streamer Fly features attractive details like a flowing marabou tail and a chenille body with palmer-wrapped hackle, but there’s one huge difference--it’s tied on a jig hook with a heavy tungsten bead so the fly rides hook point up and sink like a rock. Ideal for fishing in rocky environments, this fly design makes it easy to bounce the bottom of swift currents with less concern about nicking every rock, and a tungsten bead adds weight while giving a tempting jigging motion.
The Tungsten Jig Wooly Bugger Streamer can be fished a variety of ways and also has a look that can work to imitate anything from a large stonefly nymph all the way to a drowning baitfish. Since this is a fly with such versatility, you can get away with fishing it in a number of ways and in moving or still water. Some of the more classic approaches are bouncing the bottom with the occasional upward jig or an upstream strip retrieve, but this is a fly that allows for some wiggle room when dialing in your favorite retrieve. A fly that’s fun to fish and one that you can rely on for a range of species, the Tungsten Jig Wooly Bugger Streamer Fly should have a slot in your box all year long.
