The Buzzball Cripple My buddy Mark Raisler, co-owner of Headhunters Fly Shop, showed me Lafontaine’s Buzzball a bunch of years while on the Missouri….he may have still been cooking at The Trout Shop Cafe at that time.  When I have fished the Buzzball on the Madison, well, you just can’t see it that well.  I have [...]
