The Story

A great small and largemouth bass fly from Terry Wilson. Reminiscent of the old bait casters “pig and jig”, hop this along the bottom by pointing the rod tip toward the fly with no slack, lift, remove slack and repeat. According to Terry, that's the best way to fish it.

Size: 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic piece of kit This has been one of my standby flies for getting bass out of the grass. Beautifully tied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bass catcher I first tried this fly because others were catching bass on it. On my 2nd cast I caught a 2 pound bass. Great fly and well made.
