Thanks to David Neal for the following report received on Tuesday, and 'they' refers to Woolly Buggers:


They arrived Thursday. Have just got back from 3 days in Turangi great fishing on the woolly buggers. Hit a run of fresh fish in the lower reaches Sunday, and they were in the Major Jones this morning. Landed 12 yesterday and 6 in 2 hours this am. All 3-5 lb hens.




superfly.co.nz has 500 trout fly patterns, tied on Mustad, Kamasan, and Tiemco hooks.
