How To Tie The Slump Buster: Fly Tying Instructional Video

The Slump Buster

The fly to bust you out of your slump, ya I said it but it’s true! Created by the great John Barr this is one of my favorite flies to fish. When big fish are feeding you can bet they are looking for a meal that is worth their time. The Slump Buster is just what you need to imitate the larger aquatic snacks they are after. This is a great fly whether you are fishing still water, tail waters or freestones.
