BoogleBug is a Birmingham, Alabama based company so they're a little easier to find down south... but there are a few dealers out west... even in Colorado... just in case any fly fishers out there in Colorado need a few to test out some mysterious ponds they can see from their house... that may or may not have bass in them.
I haven't bought any BoogleBugs for this season's bass and bream fishing yet, but I will soon... or Kelly will. They're a little pricey, but well worth it. As durable as they are you don't have to buy very many before you're set. It's a good idea to use heavy tippet with them because you really don't want to lose one in a tree. I prefer to use 4X (7 lb) or 3X (8.5 lb) tippet when I'm fishing them. If you can manage to keep them out of those pesky overhanding branches, they may last all season... like this one did...

This just happens to be the same BoogleBug that Kelly used when she accidentally caught a bat back in July of last year. The photo of her catch won a contest on Cofisher's Windknots & Tangled Lines blog.

Bill of the blog Fishing through Life landed his personal best Spotted Bass using a BoogleBug, so I know he can attest to how good they really are. If you haven't seen his report on that you should go check it out... right now... I'm pretty much finished here.
BoogleBugs are awesome. Give 'em a try and you'll be hooked.
