Club Tune: Curtis Smith, with Mikey and the Reelers

The Dynammite
The Dynammite, helgrammite is an original novel pattern that will drive bass and rainbows crazy. This an alternative to the well-known Murrays helgrammite fly. It should be fished slowly off the bottom of the stream. It can be tied in alternate brown or dark green colors using real wool rather than synthetics. For extra weight the abdomen can be tied using thin wire for the segmentation. Have fun with this.
Recorded in January 2022.
