Very Woolly Bugger


Very Woolly Bugger
5x7, soft pastel

This little guy just about got away from me.   I love this fly because of it's "jewelry", the flashing on the tail, metal bead head and wire wrap.  I imagine the black feathery material could prove to be a challenge to control when tying this fly...as it was for me in painting it.  I am back into painting flies for a week or so for a couple reasons.   One, it's time to go fishing (so I can continue with the 30in30 by painting these little guys in the boat) and two,  I just absolutely love painting fishing flies!

  1. This is amazing. I make flies and I thought this was a real fly when I saw it on Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 blog! I have never tried pastel but I cannot believe the detail you can get with it to make your paintings so realistic! You are an inspiration!
