More On The Arctic Wiggler
Here is a new version of JD's Arctic Wiggler tube fly. This crayfish version has proven successful on both smallmouth and largemouth bass. The same materials are used as in the original pattern with the addition of rubber legs. The Eumer Ballhead tube is still the base of the fly. It would probably make a useful crab pattern, too.
Both the original baitfish design and the new crayfish version have application for a very wide ranges of fish species. Somebody please try these out in saltwater and let me know.
