Tying The BH Dredge

The BH Dredge


The question was raised pertaining to the Dredge pattern, as to whether or not I tied this pattern as a bead-head, and if so, could I post a video of the BH pattern as well. I had never tied the Dredge as a BH, mainly due to it's effectiveness as it was. However, recognizing how a tungsten BH Dredge could have a definite place in a box, I have tried to provide my adaptation of the BH Dredge. Having not fished this pattern, I will really on my future experiences and the reports from those who fish it as to it's effectiveness.
