Squirrel & Wine 'Diawl Bach'
As with the 'Wine Cruncher', the 'Squirrel & Wine Diawl Bach' provides a nice little alternative to straight red or red holographic crunchers and diawls. The use of squirrel as opposed to hare's ear give you a few more tones for your money, and a little extra 'bugginess' albeit a little trickier to dub - add a pinch of the underfur if you struggle. great fly throughout the season, especially when buzzers are on the menu. A figure of eight retrieve on a floating or intermediate line is usually all that's required.
