Depth Charge

Autumn colours have started to creep in and whilt the dries are still persuading a few fish (I lost a cracking fish at Chew Valley Lake last weekend...), I can't help but get the feeling that we'll be heading deeper for the fish in only a few more weeks. So as the river bugging box starts to get the overhaul, here's a favourite for those deeper pockets.



Hook: TMC 2487 #14 - #20
Bead: Tungsten 'Nymph-head'
Body: Copper wire
Thread: 14/0 Sheer, orange
Thorax: Hare (split thread)

Thanks Andy - nice to hear from you. Take a look at the next few offerings along the same lines... and a #22 that should tick the boxes for you (hopefully!).
