|The weather doesn't always cooperate. Everyone else had quit fishing. They were huddled in small groups behind the van or in the pontoon boat trailer to get out of the ferocious wind that turned the center of the lake into white-caps. Dust blew and weeds flew. Fishing from a float tube was out of the question. No one could kick and hold themselves against this wind. Determined to beat the odds, I found it easy to wade the shallow edge of the lake and roll cast down wind. My third cast enticed a nice bass to inhale the fly, a size eight Damsel Bugger presented with a short stout leader attached to the end of a five-weight floating line. The slow deliberate coverage of a hundred yards of shoreline brought several more very nice largemouths to the hand, but only between the major gusts. When the surface was bouncing around, the bass sulked. It took twenty|
| shots into a tiny cove
in a shore-line grass-bed to produce the best one. You know it was
watching the fly every cast, but struck when the water surface
calmed. Largemouth bass can be moody any time, but especially
in foul weather.
Bead Head Damsel Buggers are a universal on most any lakes. I suppose the originator thought they might look like a damsel fly nymph. However damsel fly nymphs are skinny. This fly is fairly robust and looks more like a dragon fly nymph. maybe it should have been called a Dragon Bugger.
|Patty was in the water first and was clear to the other side of the lake when I finally got organized. She called me on her walky-talky, exclaiming that she had a really nice trout. A couple more fell for her #10 Bead Head Black Wooly Bugger before she reached the other end of the lake. That was while the wind was only fifteen to twenty miles per hour. I tried her tactic, and several bass were seduced by it before the wind made us park our boats. Using the same line and same flies, she caught only trout, I caught only bass.|

|During the fall, brown trout congregate along the edges of many rivers in the Rocky Mountain States. Targeting the edges of a river with a clear tip line and a Bead Head Brown Flash-A-Bugger can make for some exciting fishing. Often the best fish are taken when the fly lands inches from the shore. Trout and bass in lakes also also can be greedy for a Brown Bead Head Flash-A-Bugger.|
This has been a very successful pattern for mud bottom reservoirs, but also is very productive in weedy rivers and lakes. Brown can be a good color for early spring fishing in lakes before aquatic weeds start to grow.

Bright colors are often the ticket for roe eating anadromous fish. Pacific salmon, steelhead and char will often attack brightly colored flies. Bright colors can be the most productive way to go during cold water periods. This fly has accounted for winter and summer steelhead.
