Game Changer

Game Changer

For decades, fly fishers have tried to create fly patterns that swim and move in the water like a real baitfish. Actually, our sights were set much lower than thateven a fly that swam like a jointed Rapala or a soft bait was a lofty goal at one time, so creative fly tiers came up with all sorts of two-piece jointed flies, and flies with trailing hooks, that had greatly improved swimming action.

But what if you came up with a swimming streamer that had three, five, or seven moving joints, and a head design that pushed water and made the mobile materials come alive? Well, that would be a Game Changer.

Check out this tub-test of the Game Changer in action, and you might never again be happy with your old streamers.

Learn from the creator Blane Chocklett how to tie the Game Changer in different version for trout, bass, giant muskie, and every other predator that swims. The details are in the current April-May 2015 issue.
