Bow River Bugger

Bow River Bugger Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Bow River Bugger is a great western streamer pattern.  The Bow River Bugger can be fished both on the dead drift and also stripped as a streamer.   The Bow River Bugger is a small minnow and/or sculpin imitation.  The Bow River Bugger is a hybrid fly and is blend between a Woolly Bugger and Muddler Minnow.  The pulsing action is mainly taken from the Woolly Bugger, while the wide and water pushing profile is taken from the Muddler Minnow.  A great pattern in the West and a particular favorite for guides on large rives in Montana!
