The Blingnobyl Continues to Perform

Not sure why, but it works

We have written quite a bit on the background and results of fishing this pattern herehere and here. Considering this spring and summer we've really been throwing it a lot more, it makes sense to push out another update with some more pictures.

Although we've fished a few minor variations, the main style of the pattern has held true.

Now with the store featuring most of the materials, including the fancy sparkle foam , it's a good time to get some of these tied up. They're super-easy to tie and float like a cork.

This pattern has seen its better days.
