Don't let the name fool you, when it comes to catching Lake Trout or Arctic Char, this fly ain't no Dumbbell.

Hook: 3XL Streamer hook size 6-2/0

Body: Any color marabou long and supple

Head: Lead Dumbbell eye

Base: Silver tinsel

Thread: White 6/0 uni

Flash: Silver Flashabou

A very simple fly to tie and is mainly used as a slow presentation castable fly for lakers.

The fly is fast sinking and is intended to be stripped either with both hands very fast or slow but aggressive for a jig like action.

This is a great fly to use for sight casting small lakers in the shallows.

Another good use for this fly if tied with brightly coloured marabou and a variety of flash and can be used in the world famous Tree River in the early season when fresh running char are still very aggressive. In that scenario I would change out the hook to a salmon style, but otherwise tie it the same.

This fantastic fly is from the fly box of Josh "Jelly" Gelinas.
