Roger's Comments


I use this pattern in casting and trolling sizes including tandems. It works well right after ice out for squaretails in the pattern and size I have done for the swap however I do use it in size 10 & 12 also. I believe that the natural flare and translucency of Polar Bear is a real attractor for squaretails and the other Trout & Salmon species as well. I normally fish it on the surface at that time and then as the water warms up change to a sinking line. It also works well for Lakers during the summer months fished as a tandem @ 50'-60' either dead drifting or trolling.
