The Damsel Project

The Damsel Project



In an effort to take advantage of a local water covered in Damsel and Dragonflies where the bass seam to focus hard on, this pattern is the result. Having not seen water as of yet, it has passed my tests of profile, durability, ease of tying and floatability. The true test will be water, and the opinions of the fish. Good or bad, I will report back to review how it does and any changes identified as being needed.

Below are pics of the floatability test. The pattern sat without floatant for 7 hours overnight.
