Gurgler Fly for Smallmouth Bass

Brad Miller discusses the versatile Gurgler Fly developed many years ago by a taxi-cab driver in New York (Jack Gartside).

I suggest using the 2mm Rainy’s Cross-Linked Sheet Foam. Some people like a bit thicker, say 4mm, but the 2mm is very dense and floats very well without being too bulky.
