Valla...do not open this!

Some call them Bottom Dredgers. They are too often over shadowed by the dry fly, but have their place here.

Valla...do not open this!

Post by catskilljohn »

These are about as anti-classic as they come. I feel so dirty tying these, I mean these...wow, its not a fly at all! I cannot wait to use them :lol:

Anyway, I found this on a European site, grayling, trout, these guys think/design a lot different than we do.

body, metallic thread, mixed and epoxied
collar, any spiky dubbing, rabbit, squirrel, etc

The guy calls them glitter nymphs...an apt name for such an eye popping pattern! CJ

Oh, colorful fly rod lures...I suppose they coordinate well with neon fly rod bobbers---eh? :)
eye popping pattern
So, I guess by sticking a tiny bit of hair on the lure it qualifies as a "pattern." :lol:

Wow!---just look at this great pattern! Perfect for the trout anglers who love beads! Can this get any better! :D "Kick 'er up a notch," bead lure fans. Increase your chances of getting that hero fish you've always dreamed about! With this unique pattern, you can have your cake, and eat it, too! You can get your fly down, where you want it---and still claim its fly fishing! :) After all, it's a fly with a bead---and that sort of defines it---eh? Yes! Just look at all that hackle. And, as every fly guy knows, if there's hackle, :) it's really a fly!~

The unique gold wings are better than wood duck. And just look at that extended cone! You get big wings, a big cone and a well-hackled bead--all in one! :D

The best thing about this newfangled fly fishing system is the price! You can still fly fish with a folding fly rod rod! Get rigged within seconds! And, it's easy to transport for those Guided Trips to Alaska. Why clutter up your Guide's boat with all those long sticks hanging over the side! Only $16.95!!! How about that! Who said fly angling has to be expensive?

Image

Fish just like this angler---fly fishing! With the new fly fishing system, first invented in Gambia, you'll be experiencing our fly angling heritage. There's no doubt this angler is cogitating the greats. Hewitt, LaBranche---and Gordon himself! And.....you can do the same! The best part is this: No one will ever say it's not really fly fishing...because :) it IS!

So, get your new fly patterns...today! And get that new 1.5ft fly rod, so small you can stick it in your back pocket!
