How To Leader A Hammer Bomb To A gflie808 Fishing Fly!

I've shown everyone who isn't aware of Bill Newton's Hammer Bomb how it assists the fisherman in casting live or dead baits to lures, grubs or flies from shore day or night. Every HB is engineered to be used specifically for night (flashing & glowing) to deeper depths (weighted lead-filled resin) to fish the shallows (unleaded-no lead so it sinks slowly) without snagging the bottom. This saves money from replacing lost gear to time being spent re-tying a new rig.

My friend from the Big Island of Hawaii, Gary Ah Sing, is an innovator who wraps custom rods to tying flies to target local species. His business gflies808 even covers customized special steel live bait needles. Gary is perfecting his fly tying skills to help local anglers target desired species by offering inexpensive fishing flies & accessories.

Since i've been getting request how i leader my HB i decided to combine those request with the products i'm now testing. I'll be using a Daiwa 11ft Coastal Surf Rod with a Shimano Twin Powers SW5000 Spinning Reel to combine these 2 products. This is a "How To" on how i make my leaders using HB & gflies808 flies. I've added red beads to my leader lines to accessorize the flies appearance and used a Breakaway Canon on my rod to help give me casting distance. I also decided to pinch-in the barbs to go barbless. This isn't necessary & is a personal choice. The one draw-back to this was i hit a huge fish that got off. Then after afterwards had another hit that cut the fluorocarbon leader line. But i always tell myself this is still better then the best day at work.
