The Originator and leader of Spinner-Fly Combinations since 1961, Joe's Flies exclusive Short-Striker "Classics" Size #8 ( 1/24oz) is our most popular and most productive lure in the "ultra-light" class.
Originally developed to catch the "short striking" native trout in West Virginia streams, however, Short-Striker Classics are equally at home hooking Smallmouth, Crappie and Breim.
The secret of the Short Striker is 3 Fold. First off, the enticing, mirror polished spinnerblade creates a flash which grabs the trouts attention. The hand tied fly, carefully chosen to "match the hatch" represents a favorite food source and causes an instinctive strike. Finally, the "trailing-treble" works in tandem with the main hook to yeilds a firmly hooked fish.
Last but not least the ez-exchange clip allows the angler to "tie on once" and quickly change patterns in seconds. Always remember you can't fish when the lure is out of the water!
