Quigley's Dragon Gurgler Iridescent - Black

The Quigley's Dragon Gurgler - Made to spit water


The Dragon Gurgler wake fly was originally devised by Mr. Bob Quigley.
This the Quigley's Dragon Gurgler in a Fishmadman tube version - A wake fly with an attitude.
Designed to spit water and to be fished with a stop and go motion. The tube will take a variety of
different hooks and hook settings.


Fish your Dragon Gurgler with the hook up-side-down


Some steelhead anglers prefer to fish the hook upside-down on their Quigley's Dragon Gurgler -
and to do so in an easy and smart way you may use a so-called egg hook or up-eye hook - as
seen fitted on the fly in the image. The up-eye hook will enable you to get a different angle on the
hook and the low-memory medium soft tubing the Gurglers is tied on, is well suited to
accommodate such a fly fishing method.

This a 50 - 45-millimeter version... or medium - Equivalent to a fly tied on a # 2 - 4hook.

Comes with hook.
