The Stink Bomber

Hook:  Mustad Streamer Hook (Size 2)
Thread:  Brown 6/0 Uni
Tail:  Pumpkin Sili-legs
Tail 2:  Spirit River Mottlebou
Body:  Green/Brown Variegated Chenille
Body 2:  Brown Leech Yarn
Collar:  Rootbeer Palmer Chenille
Weight:  Lead

I found this pattern on a Striper chat room and thought I should take a shot at a smallmouth version.  The original pattern was cream colored and I really like the simplicity. 

I went with a brown scheme because I thought "crayfish" when I looked at the shape of the original.  Leech yarn is bulletproof and really gives it a buggy appearance.  Looks like a simplified sinking  Bomber to me....see video below.

  1. Awesome looking pattern--and yes it is a good copy of the crawfish, which will get a smallies attention. Thanks for sharing
