If you want cheap and easy to obtain tying materials, check out craft shops or - my favorite source - the craft aisle of the dollar store. You can get lots of various feathers for good prices.

If you know people who hunt, get the word out that you're looking for stuff. Over the past few years I've gotten lots of feathers and moose hair, and last fall I bummed 2 bucktails and a fair sized patch of deer hair. To preserve the skins, all I do is salt them.

I have been tying for about five years now off and on and have never had to buy much material, but i am beginning to run out, does anyone have any suggestions for the cheapest and easiest place to get materials?

I don't think that I will need a book or video,I teach fly tying in the winter.I had never tied a wooley bugger before.As a matter of fact its the first time I ever herd of them.Maby that's why I couldn't catch a Brown Trout.LOL.But I really do appreciate the advice.Just goes to show I'm not to old a dog to learn a new trick.

you should get a fly tying book or a video. A beginners fly tying book from Orvis is what my husband and I started with to learn the basic flys for fishing different species.

yes, it has a chenile body with marabou tail and hackle around the chenile. i make my own version of a bugger called the fugly bugger. it is very gaudy, but bass love it and where I live and fish there are a lot more smallmouth bass.
you can also use dry flies like blue wing olives for any trout. these work real good when there is a hatch on the water. Or use a float indicator with an egg and a midge or hare's ear nymphs dropper and drift through the current. that is an entire different way of fishing.

I found a couple of patterns.I think the one you are referring to uses a marabou tail.Am I correct?

Well since the wooley bugger is a streamer it will always fall under the water when it is fished. Depending on the water and where the fish are at in the water will determine whether or not you will use a weighted bugger. Whether I use a weighted bugger or or not I will cast upstream towards the edge of a riffle and let the current take the bugger. When the fly makes it's swing is usually when the fish takes the bait. If the fish does not take the bait I them strip the fly to me in hopes there is fish following behind. Browns will roll on the fly so the take is very aggressive. Rainbows tend to sip the fly in. Hope this helps a bit. Good Luck
