WMD SBS

Former head guide at Alphonse (now back in the USA working for Umpqua) Alec Gerbec was kind enough to provide us with a detailed, pictorial step-by-step tying demo of his Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD), a killer pattern for triggerfish and other species:   RECIPE Hook: SL11 2H size 2 Thread: Danville 210 denier Weight: Flymen Fish Company [...]
