Alex's Message 2 Decades After the Flying Lure Revolution


How would you describe an idea so new, that until Now, it hasn't even had a name — An idea that nationally known fishing professionals are confidently calling, "the next revolution in fishing?" It's called the Flying Lure.

That's what we asked 20 years ago when the Flying Lure first aired on TV around the world. And two decades later, the Flying Lure has helped people catch more fish in fresh water and saltwater -- in the USA, in Canada, in eastern and western Europe, in Japan and even in Asia — than they ever thought possible. Flying Lure anglers have broken lake records, personal records and even a national record. Why? Because the Flying Lure helps anglers do something they've never been able to do on!

How Flying Lures Help Catch More Fish

The reason that the Flying Lure has worked so well for so many people over the past 2 decades is that it takes advantage of a fish's universal habits no matter the time of the year, no matter where you are fishing. The fact is, most saltwater and freshwater fish behave In predictable ways.

The built-in action of the Flying Lure makes a perfect presentation every time for just about all species of fish. Fishing with the Flying Lure takes advantage of what anglers have learned over the years. Fish hide, eat and travel in certain ways. They respond to stimuli that make them strike out of hunger, anger, aggression, or reflex response. The first key to catching fish is to turn a fish's natural hiding instinct, a disadvantage to most fishermen, into an advantage.

The underwater world is a dangerous place. It's a war zone! Fish are always in danger of being eaten or hurt by other bigger, more dangerous fish. Bass are afraid of being eaten by other bass, or muskies, or pike. Sunfish are afraid of the bass, and minnows are afraid of the sunfish. So it goes in the food chain. It's hide or die.

It’s a Battlefield Down There

The reason most fish hide is that many species are ambush feeders. Most freshwater predators, such as bass and pike often lie in wait for their prey along the edges of cover. For example, they will lie inside a weed bed facing outward, waiting for another fish to swim by. As an unsuspecting fish swims by, the predator surprises the fish and darts out to grab it.

Making a Bewildering World More Predictable

What helps us as anglers is that these hiding places are both identifiable and predictable. Finding these places is easy. I'm sure you've never been told that anything about catching fish is easy, but that's not true. One of the reasons why so many people have had success with the Flying Lure is because this very handbook, as simple as it is, told them where to look for the fish. Once you begin to find these places, using the Flying Lure is like mining for gold, because it penetrates inside these very best places. Nobody has ever done this before in these areas. People have fished near these areas, around these areas, over these areas, but never right in these areas. Once you find these areas, a few inches make a big difference, because fish will often not move out of them...not even one inch. You have to go in and get them. Now, with the Flying Lure, you can do just that.

Fishing the Flying Lure in such heavy cover satisfies the main motivations of fish while they are in an "undercover ambush" situation. If a fish is hiding, it doesn't have to swim out and expose itself to danger from other fish. It can simply eat the Flying Lure morsel that has meandered into its domain — exerting very little energy to do so, which is always a main consideration for a fish. Also, the Flying Lure turns a fish's ambush feeding instinct to an angler's advantage by giving it what it wants — easy prey that lost its way.

The Newest Flying Lures - worms, snakes and lizards

When I was just learning how to fish as a kid, I used a lot of plastic worms. I always wished that they could go right into cover - under weeds or under a fallen tree. Over the years of developing the original Flying Lure, I never lost my interest in making a plastic worm swim on its own. Not long ago, after years of experiments, the Flying Lure worm was developed. It is a natural-looking plastic worm with a wing that uses the original Flying Lure jigheads to make it swim through the water. You can even rig It weedless by impaling the hook on a soft Texas-style weed guard that's built right into the body. The Flying Lure worms come in 4-inch and 6-Inch sizes and have become one of my favorites for bass.

In the process of developing the worm, the snake and lizard designs were born. They have a slow side-to-side swimming motion in the water. They're unbelievable lures for big fish due to their natural profile. Work them along the surface, over weeds and then let them drop into an open pocket. They'll swim right in and get anything that may have been following it. Deadly! You'll be hearing a lot about this one in the future.

The "workhorses" -- Flying Lure and the Crawtail

Never have I seen a lure bring so much success and pleasure to people as the original record-setting Flying Lure and its direct descendant, the Crawtail. Day in and day out, these have been the workhorse lures that changed the world of fishing. Best of all, anyone can use them...and many have changed their fishing luck forever.
