    My dad uses a Di3 and does a long steady strip with a pause at the end most of the time. I know we are all supposed to say "Oh but no natural found in the water moves like that" - well you tell my dad that and watch him laugh as he outfishes all of us! He is oldschool!

    I have Mrs Simpson/Hamill's Killer/Walker's Killer. I sell a lot of them.
    Make no mistake, they catch fish.
    The uneducated people that fish the struggles when a hatch come on and the fish keys in on the hatch.

    Something like this:

    1. Take a wide gape hook
    2. Wrap it in orange blob chenille.
    3. Tie it off
    4. Done



    Orange blob is an epic pattern. In kzn I fish it behind big flies quite a bit (like a BFG or a zonker) and the results are interesting.
    You are a perishable item. Live accordingly.
