The Oxtongue Bugger

Posted by Steve Galea at


This is what I call the Oxtongue bugger. It drives big brook trout wild in the tea-coloured waters in and around Algonquin Provincial Park. It's essentially a white bead-head woolly bugger but instead of a marabou tail, I use polar bear fur.  It's translucent and lifelike in the water and has a nice sheen to it. The recipe is:

Hook: Any streamer hook, size 2 to 8

Bead: Size to suit water

Thread: White thread

Tail: polar bear hair with pearl Micro-flashabou accents. (3 strands each side of tail)

Hackle: White

Body: White cactus chenille
