Continuing the Rich Strolis Series of flies, I give you “The Headbanger”. I feel I must warn you though, this fly is not for the faint of heart or for those who do not wear a helmet in a driftboat. It is heavy, mean, and meant to do one thing….get to the bottom and hang big fish (I guess that is 2 things, but who is counting).

To buy this or any of Rich’s other flies (MANY, MANY, awesome patterns) jump to his site at Catching-Shadows.
