Keep 'em coming Bugz, this is one section that I would like to see more active in the forum.
Well I took some video of it at the Top secret Bugs streamer testing facility.. Aka the bathroom sink. But I could not load it, got a error message saying a security token was missing? Whats up with that Sheriff?
Anyway it strips flat, dark side/hook up. jigs when stopped and sinks pretty fast. I put .20 wire on most of the keel and about 5 turns of .35 near the 90 degree bend by be the hook eye. It does not feel like it will be to much of a PITA to cast on the 8wt, might be a bit much on a 5wt. But they have them in smaller sizes and by the look of it in the water it will not take much weight, or maybe even none at all to keep it hook point up as long as you go with a hair wing on top. If you keep to synthetic dub for the body which does not absorb water it should be castable on a 5 wt.
I would like to see more people contributing to this section too!
