Charlie had this to say today on his Facebook page. “So my Arkansas River streamer plan turned out ok, but the caddis had other ideas…spent all afternoon throwing single Screaming Banshees to rising fish and KILLED it. Twitching, skittering, dead drift, sunk…the Banshee did it all today. What a great fly!
So I thought it would be appropriate to post the video from In The Riffle which shows you how to tie the Screaming Banshee.
