Charlie Bisharat's Pole Dancer

The gang at Lelands posted this video of Charlie Bisharat's new topwater fly called the pole dancer.

Born of Charlie's "love for topwater stripers", the Pole Dancer was designed to imitate the action of conventional lures like the Zara Spook and the Lunker Plunker. As experienced bass and striper anglers know, this zig-zag, 'walk-the-dog' action mimics the movement of a wounded baitfish, and is far more enticing to big-shouldered fish than any ordinary in-line retrieve.

Once you see the moves on this fly you'll want to take a stack of ones and get some action.

The discovery is fresh evidence that the leak from the broken undersea well could be substantially worse than estimates that the government and BP have given.
