Barrett Christiansen of Caddis Fly Shop demonstrates how to tie a version of Denny Rickards Seal Bugger. The Seal Bugger is one of Denny Rickards stillwater “suggestive patterns” he details in Fly-Fishing Stillwaters for Trophy Trout and is a great searching pattern.
The Seal Bugger can be fished with a floating line or a variety of sinking lines to imitate many critters that are found in lakes and ponds such as leeches, and dragon fly or damsel fly nymphs.
