A customer hit one our more popular DH waters on Sun...despite recent reports of few or no fish and lots of blame pointed at "poachers." He only started fly fishing a few months ago and started this day with nymphs since that has been the typical recommendation for winter. After no luck he switched to bigger stuff....Barrs Slumpbuster ...and proceeded to have a great day of catching....in spite of numerous reports of "no fish." An so it goes...

Hope you are feeling better...Been thinking about you

Slumpbuster... is really just an improved Zonker. I am sure you can come up w a way to not include the cone knowing your lack of love for beads. The short length of the pine squirrel hair helps to prevent entangling the hook.

video, materials list and photos..

Thanks, Head

I am a big fan of a Matuka which is tied very similar to this,but I say that this fly might "swim" a little better. In fact, I like a Matuka so well that I don't even own a Woolly Bugger any more.
