'Kate Crippler
Dressing

.

Another of the original fleet of Cripplers, and one of the steadiest performers, no doubt due to its 'Kate' heritage. Black/silver/brown.. what's not to like? The fish love the Kate colour combo, albeit swtched around a little here, but all the main elements are there. Primarily a top dropper operator for me, with occasional outings on the tail.​
