In this video, Jim Sens ties his version of John Barr’s Slump Buster.
Using just a few materials these flies can be tied in a variety of colors, sizes, and weights. Jim creates a collar using a dubbing loop instead of traditional zonker strips giving the fly extra durabiltiy and movement. An awesome fly!
