REFINED OVER THE YEARS, THIS IS THE LATEST - AND SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVED - VERSION OF THIS AMAZING ARTICULATED PATTERN.
By popular demand, now available in two sizes - the 4/0 is the original fly now tied on a larger hook to ensure the gape is not covered by the body (following advice from well known pike guide Mark 'Zimbo' Anderson, who buys them in bulk!) This fly is 13.5 cms (just over 5 inches) long. The new, smaller fly incorporates a 1/0 hook (still the uber strong Tiemco 600 SP) and is 8.5 cms or 3.5 inches long. Measurements are from the eye of the hook to the fork of the tail.
THIS WHITE PATTERN WORKS VERY WELL WITHOUT ANY DECORATION BUT TAKES PANTONE ETC. COLOURS PERFECTLY, AS YOU CAN SEE BELOW. SEE ITS ACTION IN THE WATER HERE. PREDATORS WILL BE POWERLESS TO RESIST!!
Probably available in the UK only from Selectafly, the Gamechanger style of flies for predators was developed by the innovative fly fisherman and tyer Blane Chocklett. The unique aspect of the fly is the fact that it is tied on a series of articulated shanks which provide an incredible 'wiggle' in the water (you can see the video on our Facebook pages). Pro team member Matt Harris took some of these to South America on a recent expedition chasing the spectacular Golden Dorado. The local guides were sceptical to say the least before they saw the flies in the water. After that they changed their tune! - Matt's catch rate was exceptional and, as he left, the guides begged every remaining fly off him. The hook is a 'big fish special' Tiemco 600SP. Do invest in a few of these flies for Pike, big Bass and a host of other predators around the world. They're not cheap but, to put things in perspective, these flies cost $13.95 in the US!
The Gamechanger is a great example of the way that Selectafly quickly responds to new developments in the world of flies and fly-fishing - our brilliant Pro Team helps us do that - to give you flies that catch more fish!
