Damsel in Distress

The Damsel in Distress



The Damsel in Distress is an Attractor/Damsel pattern. I most often fish this pattern on a 10" dropper behind a hair popper. It also fishes well on a short leader with a floating line, twitch-retrieved with a "twitch-twitch- three count pause" and repeat.
