Bassano Gold Humungous (BARBLESS)
Tassie flyfishing guide Christopher Bassano on his Humungous trout fly...
The Humungous was invented by Scottish fly fisherman, David Downey. As is the case with most wooly buggers, it does not represent anything specifically, but certainly attracts fish in all types of water. Although mostly used as a point fly, the humungous works equally well in the middle. Large sizes work well even when fish are a little shy. This fly catches fish in both lakes and rivers on a fast or slow retrieve although trout do enjoy chasing it! I often catch fish in the sunshine using this fly when all else fails. Competitive anglers in Australia will rarely be without this on the cast whether fishing near the surface or with fast sinking lines. Barbless.
