Year after year, this Olive Helgramite continues to produce great catch reports. For more than 25 years now, we have had jaw dropping reports on this fly from customers using it on White River in Arkansas and from customers all over the eastern third of the US. I'm not sure what gives it the fish catching power, but it has something that works. Don Ball from Bruce, MS does well on White River by fishing it with a Jim Teeny sink tip. He lets the fly drift to the bottom, lie there for a few seconds, then raises the rod tip to let it dead drift in the current.
It finally happened! The Olive Helgramite is responsible for a state fly rod record. One of our longtime customers caught a 3lb. 2 oz. crappie in MS in May, 06.
