Tying The Jersey Damsel (Video)

The Jersey Damsel

        The Jersey Damsel is a local pattern of mine that truly performs around small bass and bluegill waters. Tied to use on a dropper behind a bassbug, it has become an excellent stand-alone pattern as well when fished on a short leader with a floating line. This is one pattern that never lets you down.
