It’s been a while since I last strapped on a chicken sized fly in pursuit of a Snot Rocket. I’ve been following Simon Graham’s blog [http://pikeflyfishingarticles.blogspot.com] reading about the flies and techniques use the hunt them down. He’s just posted a step by step tutorial on how to tie up the oddly named Ballydoonah Bomber. The fly is designed by an Irish tyer, Alan Hanna and the end of the article includes some great video highlighting his flies and the movement that they exhibit in the water. Check it out.
