Josh's Wiggle Hellgrammite

This smallmouth fly was created for bass fishing the New River and James River, but will work anywhere smallies and hellgrammites are present. The smallies love hellgrammites; however, most hellgrammite flies don't have the correct action. This fly is segmented with a rubber tail for durability. Bass tend to tear off tails made of biots or ostrich herl. Hackle is used for the rear section because hellgrammites have a bunch of small tightly spaced legs in the rear 2/3 of their body. The front legs are rubber because hellgrammites have only a few larger, loosely spaced legs in the front 1/3 of their body. This approach to the hooks gives the obvious differentiation the hellgrammite has between the rear 2/3 and front 1/3 of its body. Used with a dead drift it drives smallies crazy and it has also caught largemouth, red eyes, musky, and trout. Size 8.
