Blank Buster Nomad Scarlet "Dull Day" has been created by Sandy Dickson as his variant of the traditional Nomad created by Rob Spiller. The Blank Buster Range is a range of flies developed by Sandy to imitate flies in their different stages of development from buzzer, emerger, to dry fly and as a lure pattern for still waters.
This is definitely an essential fly. This excellent fish-catching fly was originally devised by the innovative fly-tyer Rob Spiller. The Nomad could be see as a leech or as a small fish with the movement from its marabou tail and micro cactus chenille body..
The Blank Buster Nomad Scarlet "Dull Day" can be used to catch Rainbow Trout
The Blank Buster Nomad Scarlet "Dull Day" can be used to catch Brown Trout
The Blank Buster Nomad is a trout lure / streamer. This fly can be used standalone or as part of a team of flies. Cast using a leader of 9 to 15 feet, 12 foot being normal. Retrive using a figure of 8 retrieve stopping to allow the fly to sink or alternatively use stripping retrieving the fly quickly to provoke the trout. Key is to get action from the marabou and micro chenille.
An 'experimental' purchase on my part but it certainly looks the goods.
As winter progresses and we reach for the lure box, this should be the first one out. I used it today for the first time, two fish from four casts. Had to change to another before I bagged up in 30 minutes.
