Game Changer

post #1 of 86
Thread Starter 

Blane Chocklett of New Angle Fishing Co. has come up with a new  fly design called the Game Changer that is arguably the most inovative design ever !   There is a video of his creation on his website and although the video quality is not the greatest, the swimming action of the fly clearly mimicks a live swimming baitfish.  Perhaps someone can paste the video for all to see. This is a must see !

Holy crap that thing is gnarly.

 

Fantastic idea using the incremental articualtions.  I'd like to see a materials list for that.  

 

Might have to order up some fish spines and have a go at it

A ridiculously cool fly.  Though I think they should change the name to the blue-bastage.  I know I'd spend 30-40min tying one of those only to lose it on the second cast to a ill-tempered bluefish.

I think its one o those ties that if I took the time to do it, I'd strap on the scuba gear to retrieve it if I got hung up lol.

Although it may be a little time consuming since it has four different segments and having to shape the tail, the rest of the tying procedure looks very simple and a lot less complicated than some other patterns. looks like the entire fly is tied with a brush.

Holy smokes. That is a winnah winnah chicken dinnah! eek.gif Those would be awesome during the mullet run and when tied long and skinny would kill with sand eels in the water.

Are there any recipes out yet? confused.gif

Wow... That thing's movement in the water is uncanny. Can't wait to see some of the fly vs lure debates. wink.gif

As someone commented, the tying doesn't look too complicated, but the devil's in the details. Making it so it keels properly and doesn't spin would be tricky.

The materials actually look pretty resistant to toothy fish if you fish it on a bite guard.

Anyone know when these will be available for purchase? There's nothing on the Umpqua website about them yet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gSRmtqKoxX8#at=88 It looks to me like the fly is tied almost like the KInky muddler and the shank is threw the eye of the articulated spine.. Looks killer.. Its a series of shanks connected to one another 15mm,20mm,25mm to the hook trimmed and marked,, Jointed minnow fly,, done looks easy and awesome!

I think the shanks are available,, I don't know tho for sure I am not into the shanks thing.. But what I just saw at the end is its chained together using 3-4 articulated shanks,, he wrapped the body and each shank , trimmed and magic marker,,

The entire fly is tied with a brush and although the general finished shape may look like a kinky muddler the tying procedure is completely different. If it were tied like the kinky by cinching down several clumps of material across the top and bottom of the shank, it would take forever to tie. One of the tricks to tying this fly is to trim the hair at the back of  each articulated spine short and close to the hinge to prevent the hair from impeding the swiming/wiggle action.
