Murray's Hellgrammite


Article about Susquehanna River

This is an excellent fly for short line nymphing in fast riffles--the bass hit this one very hard. Don't be afraid to tie this one large--I've seen hellgrammites 5 or 6 inches long! The ostrich herl tail gives this fly a distinctive swimming action in the water.
