Thread: FOTM 03-2014 - Woolly Bugger

  1. Default FOTM 03-2014 - Woolly Bugger

    Feel free to post a single pic, or a SBS of your version of the Woolly Bugger. Discussions and inputs welcome - all other banter will be moderated Submissions will be closed 31 March 2014 ito this "competition", but I guess the thread should remain open to related discussions and even if you want to post pics afterwards.

    Looking forward to seeing your flies ....
