This tailing material provides a great foundation for any fresh or saltwater streamer. These work well for larger baitfish patterns and forage fish imitations.
Frantic Tails™ have a realistic baitfish profile offering fly fishermen a simple and effective alternative to using hackle and other traditional tail materials. They are made of an almost indestructible synthetic suede that cannot be bitten off, will not shrink and is easily colored with a permanent marker pen. Most importantly, they produce a frisky, fish-attracting tail action when fished!
The secret to the tails frantic movement is the unique design and method of attaching the tail to the hook. Instead of tying in the tail on one side of the hook like similar products, the Frantic Tail has a unique "flap" design that is used to create a "hinge" effect that positions the tail directly behind the hook shank in a balanced way. This hinge acts like a spring and generates movement from the tail with very little effort by the angler. In addition, the hinge provides a strong, stiff connection point for the tail which virtually eliminates any fouling.
