I call this the Ugly Damsel but it is a woolly bugger varient.

• Hook: Size 4-8, straight wet fly or nymph hook. A normal to short shank hook is required for the fly to “work” correctly.
• Thread: Olive, Chartreuse, Tan, Beige or other fairly neutral color
• Tail: Olive marabou. (can be tied with other colors – black and brown being good additional options)
• Body: Dubbing or fuzzy yarn that matches tail color.
• Rib: Green, chartreuse or red wire.
• Hackle: Olive/olive grizzly saddle hackle (or hackle to “match” body/tail)
• Eyes: Red or yellow dumb bell eyes – weight to match conditions/fly size.
• Legs: Centipede legs or other “rubber” legs. Barred Olive or yellow work best on the olive bodied fly, but I have used other colors. Generally starting with color close to the body of the fly is a good start, but don’t be afraid to try other colors.

Rib: wooly bugger feather with gold wire
Bead: Gold

ok, second post and my first fly (actually third one ever!). I didn't have seal fur but it is a variation on this pattern:

Green Seal Bugger

Hook: Mustad R74 Size 8
Thread: 8/0 Olive
Weight: 0.015 Lead
Tail: Black Marabou
Rib: Medium Copper Wire
Body: Green Seal Dubbing
Hackle: Burnt Orange Grizzly

I used a #6 Streamer hook and Green Olive Dubbing, two strips of crystal flash added as well. I have problems finding Hackle (like everyone) so it was just a ginger strung neck hackle.

Does it have two hooks? because it looks there is a hook eye in the middle.

No. Like a Balanced Leech pattern, you tie in a pin "borrowed" from the wife quilting supplies.

Hello everyone,

I made this fly up last year for a couple of buddies looking for something different to use on the Niagara River while steelheading. I called it 'Nuclear Bugger'.

Use whatever size hook you prefer for a normal bugger.
Body is charteuse chenille
Hackle: blach genetic
Tail: Marabou
