Balanced Damsel 2.0

An Update to Simplify and Improve

New and Improved: Balanced Damsel
It's been a while since I first wrote about one of my favorite damsel patterns, the Belly Flop Balanced Damsel. In the meantime, I've been fishing them a lot and, more importantly, tweaking the design for more simplicity as well as efficiency in tying. What I found is a pattern that is just as effective but takes a lot less time to tie.

As mentioned in the video below, these can be fished under and indicator as well as stripped on any number of sinking lines of your choice.

It's definitely accounted for a good number of fish on local stillwaters this year so far and my Balanced Damsel section of the box has grown even bigger.

Give it a try!!
