    Another interesting bomber variant is the Green Machine. You may already be familiar with it. If not use your google finger. Warren Duncan ties a curious double colored butt version.

    the green machine is a very effectife fly but I always seem to catch grilse when I fish it. it is now refered to as a the "grilse fly" in our camp. But it does also catch big fish. My brother got a 32 on it and I know of several other big fish landed with it.

    This is my favorite color and style of bomber I use. Great contrast and it creates a good heavy wake.
