Fly Patterns

Bugger Buddy: Olive


Recreate fly patterns at home! Materials used in making this fly have been included below. Always keep in mind your local fly-fishing store will most likely have the materials referenced, and typically for less. Materials can also be found at Amazon or any other major on-line resource.

  • Danville Flymaster Thread, Nylon, 6/0, Olive
  • Painted Dumbbell Eyes, Medium, Pearl

Design Inspiration & Detail

This fly was tied by Pete Colding of Southern Boys Flies. Pete spent a good portion of his youth in Southern Florida and holds a few secrets to effectively landing fish. He now ties from North Carolina and ships a good amount of product back to Florida. To learn more about Pete and his extensive inventory, see our post on Southern Boys Flies.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Redfish – many other species will also take the fly.
