RE:Juro's Juvie

John -

The picture is not a good one, but from the end profile it's almost flat. I originated the use of marabou on the extended throat (about the length of the viceral cavity) during it's coho salmon pacific herring imitating roots, which gives it a polly-wog action when wet. It acutally looks fuller wet than dry.

The angel hair is another coho salmon remnant, it's popular stuff out west for SWFF just as it is here for stripers. I don't like to use it for more than a topping due to it's lack of durability and in some situations it's too bright (Monomoy).

Other than my marabou idea it's a bigeye baitfish without the prism leaves, reduced bucktail use (balanced with synthetics) and softex over sticker eyes in front.

Hope that helps!
