The Bushwacker

tied by rp3flyfisher
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Trout,

Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Material List:
Hook- Size 10-14 Scud Hook
Body- Stillwater Solutions Olive Sparkle Dubbing

Tying Instructions: -Tie on your thread

-With either a Dubbing loop or dubbed thread dub your body. Start the body a bit thin, get fatter in the middle and thin out again as you get close to the hooks eye.

-Tie in one goose Biot on either side of the hook at the head. The Biot should be off to the side and slightly angled to end above the body.

-Whip Finish, and you are done

Presentation Tips: I use this fly as a search pattern. The fly can be trolled as you are looking for structure or can be used on a type III sinking line and do a slow rip & Strip with short erratic 4-6" strips.
