If the weather has you down, bust your slump

by Brian Zinger on February 17, 2019

This week the club is back on home turf at the Earthlogic building in Essex. This week Jamie Eisenberg will show us a fly that was very productive for her last year, the Slump buster. It’s a zonker style fly that has a ton of action and a larger profile, like a woolly bugger. If you are in the Essex area stop on by, everyone is welcome.

(superglue or head cement)

THREAD:              BROWN OLIVE (6/O or 140 denier)
