    Spook-R Fly

    https://umpqua.com/products/flies/ba...urface/spook-r

    Anyone fish this thing? Snapt? Looks awesome for Bass/Pike and Stripers. How does it compare to the Pole Dancer?

    Looks fun. I'm a big fan of the pole dancer. Caught a lot of fish, (trout included), on those things.

    I might have to grab a few of those things and test em out on some smallies this spring.

    as I only fish a proper silk line presented upstream to rising trout with Theodore Gordon quill flies hand tied on the thighs of pregnant 19-year old Argentines I'm going to have to disagree <- sorry, braved a patagonia store and their avalanche of smug flyfishing BS yesterday.

    more "isn't that the shape and material of what people use for other types of fishing".

    That does look pretty odd for a 'fly', but I guess fishing it with fly gear is a whole different game than with conventional.

    Regardless, looks killer for spring pike.

    Looks like a lure, but so are most other topwater flies. Looks cool, and if its cheaper than a Pole-dancer that's a major plus! I like the Flat Fred, Pucker Lips and swimming frog a lot personally.

    I have found them at The Fly Shop online for $10 so a bit cheaper. Headed to the Sac. river in May for Stripers again and looking to add more junk to the arsenal.
