At some obscene hour of the morning the hubby shook me and asked me if I had seen his 'Conehead Woolly Bugger'.  Are you kidding me?  His friend  has been here all week to fish and I heard them both tearing the house apart.
 
I got up and it was like a typical day of me looking for my wallet or house keys...drawers and cabinet doors opening and closing.  I thought they were looking for some kind of comic book or video game or something.  No...a 'conehead woollly bugger' is a watchamacallit thingy you fish for trout with...a fly tie...tie fly?  Oh, and it's the KING of those thingamabobs and they have both lost theirs!!  Oh, the humanity and all I'm thinking about is if I step on that barbed hook someome is gonna get a ...well....what???  A bed buddy to the hinney?  I don't know.
 
They had hooked them to their baseball caps...yes they did.  Now they can fish and not catch anything again today with this fabulous 'fish magnet'.  Conehead Woolly Bugger...how can you go into a 'trout fishing store' and ask for one of those with a straight face? tongue

Reach out and touch someone.  If they don't touch you back it's because you still  have brownie batter on your face.

Oh yes, I have heard of the wooly booger.  My first husband use to make flies, or tie flies I guess you would call it. 
 
They sure have some strange names, some of them are called skunks.  There are so many kind of flies.  Good thing they found them hooked on their baseball caps.  No telling where they would have been if they didn't.  lol..
 
What a way to make my day dear.  Thank you for the laugh.

I think it is booger, I could be wrong. But I remember my husband (late) making them. I got a kick out of it. He would make these fantastic rubber spiders, and we would catch blue gill all day long on them.

I remember one time I was fishing for bluegill (pan fish) and a big old pike come up and took my fish. It was a trip. Then somebody saw the pike dragging my line and bobber around. That was the one who got away with my fish. lol...

You always have such funny stories, I really enjoy reading them.

Donna, your posts are just so much fun. I love it. Sorry you were woken up, though. My dad used to do all kinds of fishing, including fly fishing. I did a little bit of it, too. Sort of fun - I just liked whipping that line around to cast it out. But I admit, I didn't know the names of any of the flies - and your title sure had me scratching my head. LOL My dad used to say that if you can tie flies, you can make a fair bit of money at selling them. Glad the boys found their stuff ... lol .. hope everyone enjoys the day out.

Sorry, Donna.  I had to check this out.  It sounded more like a bad sinus infection to me!  turn    So, I googled it and, sure enough, there it was!  If anyone is as curious as I was, here is what it looks like.
 
 
It must be quite fetching on their baseball caps.

Sherrine...no wonder you could find it...you spelled it right, LOL!  But 'the boys' have the deluxe model....your basic CONEHEAD Wooly Booger.  I do believe they told me it's that CONEHEAD that attracks all the fish.  Yeah, right.  So far three chubs and a small mouth bass that was half dead when they caught it.  But, they are having fun!!!

Shirley...yes!  I put his yellow markers for grading papers in the freezer!  I believe they still worked after they thawed out.  I ran his red, leather wallet and a fountain pen through the washer however.  Gone and ruined forever.  Also turned the whole load of clothes red. smhair
 
I hate it when that happens.

That is hilarious, Donna. When I first read it, I thought your hubby was talking nonsense in his sleep and that he needed a wooly burger. Wonder if they serve those at Sonics!

btw: my hubby just drove 3 hours to buy a pistol nipple wrench. cringe. It is for reloading bullets or something

Minnie...I have four books in print but haven't written in about ten years...can't concentrate or sit at the computer for long periods of time anymore.  Thanks for the compliment.  I DO have a book I started last winter and plan to get back to it once I am through these horrible SSRI withdrawals.

Sue...my hubby asked a neighbor if he could borrow his ten pound blow hammer!  yeah Yikes! (I think it was for pounding in fence posts around the garden....)

I don't think I could work in a tool store...I would die laughing.
