EL Chupacabra Tutorial

EL Chupacabra Tutorial

    Highly influenced by Brad Bohen’s Hang Time and fortified with Clear Cure Goo El Chupacabra is a staple in my Esox arsenal. After years of fishing and tweaking it’s a great confidence pattern that can be tied in a just about any color scheme you can imagine. But don’t think of El Chupacabra […]

Unlike most UV curing products on the market it comes in four different styles, thick, thin, brash-able and flexible. I never really got into using the traditional epoxies due to the mixing, drying and […]


Goodbye Winter

Goodbye Winter

Goodbye Winter As winter finally starts to give way to spring I couldn’t help but reflect on the stellar fishing and great times I had with old and new friends alike. Some warmer beautiful days and a few good waters years have made for some pretty great winter fishing this last season. But the best […]


Random Tail
