I've been fishing the "Ugly" for a few years and often pull it out of the box when I need a heavy nymph/streamer to fish in the late winter or anytime the water is up after good rain. Like the picket pin, it can be fished as a nymph, or retrieved like a mini streamer. You will notice that I added a fire orange thread hot spot on two just to experiment.
Ausable Ugly Material list:
Thread: Grey UTC 70DN
Tail - muskrat fibers
Body - heavily dubbed muskrat
Rib: Silver ultrawire (Sm)
Hackle - grizzly hen, palmered from bend to eye
Rough it up with a wire brush or velcro when finished, it's supposed to be ugly!
