[Video] How to Tie Big Ben’s Brown Bugger

Fly Fish Food demonstrates how to tie a Big Ben’s Brown Bugger in this fly tying video tutorial. If you are a fan of woolly bugger or leech patterns then you’ll like this stillwater streamer pattern. It’s big, it’s buggy, and it catches fish.

The secret sauce to this pattern is Simi-Seal Dubbing, a really cool seal fur imitation dubbing that comes to life when it hits the water.

While this pattern was developed as a stillwater trout pattern I don’t see why this bugger wouldn’t work in rivers for trout or smallies, which is where I will be trying it out.
