Design by Blane Chocklett
The Bugger Changer takes the most recognizable, iconic, and likely the most commonly fished freshwater streamer fly, to the next level by adding multiple Micro-Spine articulations for lifelike movement.
This highly articulated, 6-part woolly bugger attracts fish in fast or slow water, rivers, ponds, and lakes, in dirty water or spring creeks. It imitates crayfish, minnows, sculpin, leeches, and many other natural foods trout love.
The Woolly Bugger is a fly many anglers have long relied on as a do-it-all fly, but while the classic Woolly Bugger relies solely on the materials for movement, the all-new Bugger Changer adds full body articulations for ultra-lifelike movement and more fish in your net!
Will be initially available in 3 popular Bugger colors and sizes i.e. Black, Brown and Olive in a #6 and #8 hook size. Trout beware!

Q: When are they available?
A: We expect the Bugger Changers to become available towards the end of April.
Q: Why are the flies sometimes not in stock? A: GC flies are in high demand and they tend to sell out very quickly. These are specialized, custom-tied flies that are technically difficult and time consuming to tie to the correct specifications. As a result, our factory sometimes cannot produce them fast enough and therefore are not always available.
Q: How long will I wait for my flies if I have to Pre-Order?
A: It may take several weeks (or longer) for your order to be delivered. If the flies are not in stock, our system enables you to place a Pre-Order and we will ship to you the moment they become available. Essentially, your order is placed on a waiting list that is fulfilled on a first-in first out basis. We will keep you updated on a regular basis with an estimated delivery date (EDD). As our capacity increases, any lead times should be reduced to a minimum.
Q: How durable are the flies?
A: Very! The precise method the flies are tied, and the high percentage of modern, synthetic materials used in them make for a tough, hardy fly that should stand up to dozens of landed fish.
