Fuzzy Wuzzy Tutorial

This fly doesn't get tons of attention from most folks digging through the bins at The Northern Angler. That's probably because it's not loaded up with flash, hackle or big wings. What it does have is a great profile that sits right in the film for fish to key on. That's probably why it's one of the flies you'll consistently see in our guide's hopper boxes all summer long. 

Tied all the way up to a size 2 (yes a size 2!), we are typically tying and fishing the Fuzzy Wuzzy from size 10 to 4. You'll hear me mention the River Road Foam Cutters at the beginning of this tutorial but you can tie this fly very easily without as long as you cut yourself two different sizes of foam to work with.
