It works! -
By: Eglicky from Ashland, Massachusetts
As a warmwater flyfisher I went to a local water thinking it's about time to try for trout. This "fly" works I landed 3 nice rainbows. My dilemma now is, am I no longer just a warmwater flyfisher all because of this one "fly" ? I just purchased 5 more size 10 in black just so I don't run out.
Good and Bad -
By: CarolinaFisher from Morganton, NC
I have good and bad news about the hot cone woolly buggers both green and black. The good news is they really attract the trout especially the black with orange cone. If the trout are not hitting standard woolly buggers, they will hit these! The bad news is they do not last. The green cone paint and the orange cone paint will chip completely off in less than an hour of use. Once that happens, you have a standard woolly bugger. The other problem is the body of the woolly bugger will start to slid down the shaft of the hook again after a short time of use. So, after about an hour's use, you can just throw them away. Too bad because these have great potential for catching trout.
Great flies -
By: Boatman93 from Georgia
Used these flies for a few days in Argentina. They were killer when fishing them deep in the glacial lakes for huge trout. I generally tie my own flies but wasn't able to for this trip but these held up just as well as ones that I tie. The neon head on the fly really seemed to trigger a reaction from the trout when the copper headed woolly buggers would not.

I picked up several of these flies to add to my collection of large stream trout box. They are perfect size for 1 to 3 pound trout. My friends and I all agree that this will be great in the fall when we go up to the mountains. Can't wait until they come up with more colors. Would really help out the people who have trouble tying flies(my fly stealing friends!!)
Rainbow slayer -

Take my word, this bugger pattern stripped slow with a streamer stripper is deadly with large rainbow trout on the prowl. Enjoy!
