It is the newest addition to the Berkley line of Gulp products…
Scientifically speaking the Hellgramite is the larvae stage of the Dobson fly. In it’s natural environment, it is kind of a creepy looking three inch thing hanging from tree limbs or found crawling on rocky points ready to slip into fresh water lakes and streams to be devoured by fish. (That’s it under the Berkley logo on the right.) It has little jaws and little teeth that can pack a wollop of a stinging bite, if you try to pick one up alive. Oh – it was the spotlight product at this year’s ICAST show, in Las Vegas held just two weeks ago.
So, in this week’s podcast, we chatted with Kevin Jarnagin, Berkley’s PR spokesman about the little rascal and other items introduced at the show. Kevin not only told us about the NEW Gulp Hellgramite and it’s potential for walleye anglers, but he told us about re-introducing GULP crickets, and about other new products like floating pliers, and a new light weight, but super tough bait casting reel, called the Pflueger Patriarch. And he introduced us to a new fishing line from Trilene – Burnt Orange Sensation. You’ll find the chat fascinating, as Kevin also reveals his tackle choices for a Canadian fishing trip.
