Today we are checking out the Blank Buster, tied by Steve Cullen. This pattern as Steve explains, is one that he actively uses when he visits the Czech Republic. The colour combination of Black and Green makes this pattern deadly in both rivers and still water venues. Steve also makes us aware that this fly isn't small, it's tied to a size 8 jig hook with a 3.5mm Copper bead, allowing for a fast sink rate and perfect jigging motion! Finally, as the name suggests, when you've tried everything from Wets too Dries, this will be the fly to save you from the blank, the Blank Buster will save the day!
All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie the Blank Buster, with the guidance of Steve Cullen.
Steve Cullen will also be attending our Autumn Open Weekend this month! He will be at our famous Fly Tyer's Row chatting to customers and showing off his skills, tying all sorts of patterns!
