Bill's Extended Hellgramite
tied by Pujic
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Eastern Canada,
Hook: Mustad: Streamer, size 4
Thread: Black Uni 6/0
Underbody: Heavy lead, or lead substitute wire. You want this fly to get to the bottom and stay there.
Body & Tail: Bill's marabou chenille, light brown. The tail is just a loop formed by the chenille with both ends tied in at the tail and then palmered forward to create the body.
Wingcase & Antenna: Bill's stretch foam, black.
Rib: Black Wapsi Ultra Wire.
Presentation Tips: Although it looks like a mess this fly has unbelievable action underwater and is a great hellgramnite (dobsonfly) immitator. because it's heavily weighted it sinks down low where these huge nasty insects are usually found and has a tendancy to fool fair sized smallies.
A smaller version can also be tied (see my other DB submissions).
