Bomber: Top 10 Reasons Why I love the Bomber!

10. The Bomber gained popularity on the Miramachi River. Classic.

9. It reminds me of wild places with pristine rivers.

8. Phonetic pronunciation is either bom-mur or bomb-ber. Bomb-ber is adorable.

7. A little Mucilin and it is unsinkable.


6. It's easy to see when a shield of black flies impairs your vision.


5. Fish take them skated or dead drifted; inhaled or sipped, respectively.

4. It makes a sexy v wake when skated across slick water.

3. It's easy to thread the hook when it's a size 4.

2. It's a dry fly that needs to be thrown with an 8 weight.


1. Big fish eat them. Really big fish.
