Bonecrusher – Larry Dahlberg

I’ve been directed toward Larry Dahlberg’s Bonecrusher a few times.  I watched it catch fish on one of Larry’s “Hunt for Big Fish” shows and have been thinking of that fly for a while.

I couldn’t find any videos of the Bonecrusher being tied, but I did find a message board with an email from Larry himself.  Worth a look.
