Appropriately named the "slump buster" is really a buster of slumps. This fly is so easy to tie, yet so effective! You can tie up 10-20 in an hour, and is effective for so many species of fish. Its tail moves wonderfully, the front body is wide almost like a sculpin, and its got enough weight to give some jig action. You can catch bass, crappie, small pike, many species of saltwater fish, and mostly trout. In fact, the last time I fished with this fly I caught a nice 24-25" wild brown trout on the Animas River, in Durango Colorado. This is for sure one of my go to streamers for trout fishing. Being so easy to tie, I always have a few of these in my box.

You have a shockingly high amount of YouTube views and subscribers for only starting in January.
Thanks! I actually have been making fly video's since january 2016, not 17... So a year and 2 months or so... But The first few months were kinda mediocre. I wasn't great at tying and videoing at the same time. But I increased my quality of video, and it started doing much better. Then, I started my fly fishing show and that really helped boost my channel. Im hoping that it keeps improving because my next thing I want to do for the channel is start filming in 4k, but that is expensive. My current computer wouldn't handle the programs required for 4k, and the camera's are also expensive. The total cost to upgrade everything to 4k would be around $5,000 or so, which is wayyyy outa my budget... But, I'm working on getting a sponsor which will allow me to purchase the things I need. Right now its not even enough money to pay for the gas to my river. HAHA Youtube ads really don't do much unless your getting millions of views a day. I get about 100k-150k/month right now. Im very happy with that, but its not like it really even pays for my time at all. I currently am only doing it for the love of fishing and making video's. Its totally a non-profit thing right now. HAHA

No, that wasn't me... I haven't been in Montrose ever honestly. I plan on going up to that really nice lake up there soon though. Blue something. I forgot the name...
