When you're looking for something big, ugly and heavy - this is the fly to choose. This fly came about while I was trying to come up with something big to fling with my spey rod. I also tie a lot of steelhead jigs and my favorite the past couple seasons has been one tied with Ibalz instead of the standard lead ball for a head. Using smaller dumbell eyes and some other touches, this fly works really well on larger rods. It sinks quickly to get into those deep runs and pools. Try it in a variety of colors. Also makes a good bait fish imitation for Salmon
