The Story

The Conehead Crystal Bugger is a popular variation of the classic Wooly Bugger fly. The added flash and weight of this Wooly Bugger version make it a great fly when rivers run stained and a more visible fly becomes necessary making this old-stand-by even better.

Sizes: 4, 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bass fly! Great bass fly! Tried the Halloween pattern tonight and got a nice bass. Will work great in the late summer/fall when they hammer crawfish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Bass Fly Gotta say these conehead rubber buggers are in my top choices. I prefer the size 4 and have caught some really solid Bass...with a few over 5lbs. Also have caught some chunky sunfish way bigger than my hand. I prefer the olive over other colors, but have all of the Orvis colors and caught fish on all of them. It is a great fly for suspending Bass. I am using an 8wt rod with a Bass taper floating line and these fly's cast smooth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the rubber turns to a sticky paste if you don't use them and lose them immediately, the rubber starts to get soft and turns into a sticky mess. go for the tunghead buggers - these are straight garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ink bleeds a ton Orvis is a great company with quality products, usually.I have to be honest. I have had luck with this style of fly..the rubber legs move well and has been a good representation of a a leech or hellgrammite. However, the ink appears to not be set correctly and once wet stains your hands black (for the black flies)... I had two orders of these be the same way and bled horribly once wet. Not only is this a pain but pollutes the watershed. The ink needs to be set correctly. Now I tie my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cone Head Rubber Bugger = Big Bass Never tried the rubber bugger, but when I saw it on the Orvis web site it made good sense that Largemouth Bass would tear this up. I tried one out recently and it worked like a champ. I used size #4....big enough to attrack the bass, but still a fly so different and does not look like what a typical conventional bass fisherman would toss in the water. I will be buying more of these!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent fly Great fly. I have found it to be a little clunky for trout, but have caught a few dead drifting or on the swing. I use this most often for carp. Let it sink and wait to see a tailer. Give a short strip to make a puff of dust in the water and then wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will attract big fish Have caught many fish on this fly, from big browns to large mouth bass, this fly is a must for the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended I was fishing on the Teton River in Idaho the water was a little murky but not too bad.I was using nymphs for a while then switched to a little black bugger and got one hit after about 60 casts. It didn't seem like it would end up being good so I looked in my fly box for patterns I hadn't used before. I chose the ConeHead Bugger,I threw it out and let it drift under a willow then I stripped it in quickly first cast I caught a nice Cutthroat trout and almost every cast after that I caught a good fish.
