Recipe for Olive the Woolly Bugger

I’m posting this demonstration on how to tie a woolly bugger not so much as a favor to those reading who may want to try a new recipe, but as a reference for the animation studio that will eventually bring Olive to life. It may help them to see how the actual woolly bugger is tied and how it looks when completed (although Olive doesn’t have a bead head).  Thanks to Midcurrent for posting this video by Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions.

    I know that you are working hard at this, but I think you are having entirely too much fun at it too. I wish my dad was alive….he was a fisherman and would love all this.

      Wenda, I think you fully grasp that a passionate pursuit is fun by simple virtue of the fact that it is personally rewarding. It’s a lot of work, too, but it doesn’t feel like work. Kinda like our days at Edmark…getting paid to produce those wonderful products was a dream come true! I wish your dad was alive as well. He’s probably watching!
