Bulkhead - Ultimate Water Pusher!

One of the best bass and saltwater flies created in my opinion is the reverse bulkhead fly. This water pushing, flowing, and flashy fly is a variation on Bob Popovics design. I’m not the only person to tie it like this though, as many people have taken the reverse bulkhead design and tweaked it to their likening, like adding feathers or using synthetics. However this version is my favorite that I’ve used, because it just flat out works! Species this fly will work on are bass (largemouth and smallmouth), stripped bass, redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook, salmon, and pretty any species that eats other fish. I like this red/white combo for stained water, but you could tie it in any color combo for your local areas and fish forage.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
