    Default Buggy vs Bushy

    I have noticed over the last couple of years, interacting with many fly fishers that there is a a little bit of confusion in terms of Buggy vs Bushy or Buggy=Bushy or will Bushy look Buggy.

    Bushy is not always Buggy.
    Buggy does not equal Bushy.
    Bushy can be anti-Buggy.

    Have a look at your flies and see if there is a difference for you or let me know what is your opinion.

    I prefer trimmed or smooth, to bushy.

    Yeah I must say that too much bush can be a problem. A gradual taper presents much better

    Nothing worse than a bush thats bugy...
    I think no innocent species of wit or pleasantry should be suppressed; and that a good pun may be admitted among the smaller excellencies of lively conversation.
