This wooly bugger (in the colors shown) took a couple chum last year. I used it when the conditions were right for a weighted fly of this size and type. It is really nothing more than a wooly bugger tied in chum colors. See Wooly Bugger for tying instructions and another example of the fly tied in good colors for Chum.
