    Red eyed damsel - really just to fill up the 3-fly box, but also to catch something for the pan from a stocked dam on my way home after the real catch and release wild trout stream fishing

    Interesting,and if you group the woolybugger versions together you have a clear winner in the wet/streeamer fly section.
    One of the stupid mistakes in life is to underestimate peoples level of stupidity!

    As above Geertsema

    Its probably the most versatile wet fly there is, change the size up and you have a bait fish pattern, change the colours and you have an attractor for prospecting, keep it drab and have a natural, articulate it, and you have a serious piece of meat - great fly, it works in most freshwater ecosystems, as well as some salt water applications like the salty bugger.
