Default Short Strikers by Joe's flies


I haven't heard any reports of people using these lures and I'm curious how people have done with them. I picked up a few but haven't tried them yet because we've been doing so well with the pistol petes/Monteras marvels lately.

For those that are using them, do they have enough weight to cast by themselves, or are you fishing them behind a bubble like a pistol pete or other fly? I'm using a spinning rod and run all of my flies behind a bubble.

Well, here's the image off of landbigfish.com. It's a large fly with a colorado spinner on a small wire shaft with a treble trailer. Seeing as how many fish I miss off of pistol pete's, I figured the treble trailer would be good.



Here's a picture of the packaging off of joe's flies web site:

BTW, I did a search on this site and only found one relevant hit. Of course the poster was using a royal coachman and I didn't buy that one

I have some black ones that are similar at least, I bought them when I first moved out here, I guess 6lb test is too heavy for spin gear to cast them cause I couldn't get them out more then 10ft, don't think I ever tried them again really.

I'm going to head out to Prospect lake tonight after work and I'll give them a try. The lake was just stocked last week so they should still be biting pretty well. I've got an ultralight with 4lb test on it. If I can't cast it with that, I'll add a split shot. I'll probably also try it behind a bubble.

I was going to say it look like it might work, but if you want cast further it why not just forget about the whole spinner thing and throw a real woolly bugger.

I have a couple of wooly buggers. I find that pistol petes do better (more hits) than a wooly bugger so I have more confidence in those. However, I miss alot of hookups on the pistol petes so I thought the trailing treble would help with that.

You could put a trailer on the pete's. If I'm in a bind and missing alot of hits from real short strikes, I'lll put a trailer on anything.
The techniques I use is--- take some 4-8lb test about the distance that you see the short strikes at, whether it be 1-6"s behind the bait. Tie one end to the eye of the hook, and the other to #14 treble. When you cast and reel in or pop behind a bubble. The treble will lay back behind the main hook, and usually hook those pesky short strikers.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the advice fist. For some reason, I don't think of that when I'm out fishing. I just get frustrated sometimes when I miss a lot of hits.
