If you know a thing or two about the woolly bugger fly, then it should come as no surprise that they’re more than just trout food.  One of the reasons I chose the woolly bugger as the central character for my children’s fly fishing books is because the woolly bugger is so effective at deceiving such a wide variety of gamefish. Granted, a largemouth bass will eat anything, but that doesn’t mean you need to throw just anything at them. Over at The Naturalist’s Angle, blogkeeper Jay ties a variation of the woolly bugger for bucketmouths and includes a recipe HERE.

The bigger the better.
