    I'm still working on the evolution of the rubber bandit worm pattern. This time I've added a row of glass beads to weight the fly just enough and ensure that it always rides point up. The purple rubber band was scavenged from some broccoli I bought.

    That's a creative tie Brad - thanks for tossing it up. You better update this thread when you've got one hanging off the side of a big ol' bucket mouth.

    The orange version worked well in the past (without the beads) fooling a 4-5 pound largemouth, but I will definitely update the thread if I get a chance to fish for bass this spring

    Rubber bandit Worm: Albino Mutation!

    The RubberBandit Worm experienced a mutation of pigmentation gene R3. The result is an albino phenotype. This is not a GMO and no gene splicing was used to create the organism.;)

    Picked out angora wool yarn was used instead of the standard saddle hackle. It gives it an uber-scud look that I'm sure will interest predatory fish.

    I hope the temps this weekend will be bassy!
