Hello Folks,

I've always had great luck with mini-buggers in both warm and cold water. It's time for me to restock a couple of very empty rows in various fly boxes. My problem with mini-bugger is finding hackle that is webby enough, long enough to complete the fly, and small enough to use for sizes #12 and #14. I've sometimes even had to resort using dry fly saddle hackle which, of course, fails in the webby, good motion in the water category. I've never been very happy with the two or three feather method because the results look so darn ragged. All suggestions and ideas would be greatly appreciated. 8T
