Regular Tagger Dan, is not only a recent convert to fly fishing, but to tying as well. “should I try one of my Woolly Buggers” he asked? As it looked similar to my successful brown versions, “why not” was the answer.
Within a few minutes this was the result … 2.5lb beautiful wild brown trout, with grin to match. The only problem was the next fish, considerably bigger and less obliging, struck, bit it off to keep it!
Had to rely on the guide’s version for the next one along with a neat bit of self netting!
After a frustrating, but intense couple of hours polaroiding at least a dozen fish cruising the flats, but ignoring everything presented to them, we put on Dan’s ‘other Bugger’ and last cast, last fish. A great way to finish.
