The sound, profile, and action of a properly packed and sculpted diver swimming and gulping on the surface are often too much for big predator species like bass to take!
These bleeding shad divers are tied on size #1 premium hardware with a rabbit strip tail and weed guards. Pictures are of the fly/flies you will receive.
Guide Recommendations - Once your frog lands, let the ripples dissipate for 30-60 seconds (it feels like an eternity every time), but make sure to stay ready. Try to slow down your retrieve, and try to avoid stripping in a rhythm. Most importantly, always strip set. In case of a miss, slightly increase your strip cadence, and stay ready for another surface explosion!
We recommend an 8-weight as our go-to for casting and fishing these in most conditions. On calm days, a fast 7-weight can suffice.
