Thanks champ, that prawn is HOT! Very inspirational.....

I fiddled with the SST a long time ago, candies are heaps easier.

Do you think felt would make a good replacement to chamois?


hey Lionel,
do you get your candies to randomly dart like the sst, are we talking the same theory here? did you just weight the rear of the hook with lead ?? as tying the wire in etc on the SST is definitely time consuming but do you get the same action with your candies?

my understanding is that the value, or effectiveness of the SST comes purely from having the lead weight positioned behind the actual hook bend, and thus on the pause the ass really tries to overtake the head and you get a random angle dart on the next strip?
if you look at the recipe and his remarks .. seller specifically defines the number of turns of lead for a few diff hook sizes.. . gives the impression he had done a fair bit of analysis on it, me i have done very little research so iím genuinely interested to hear you results

itís interesting stuff, i wish had more time to play with such things, just cause sellers says its special does not mean it is,


see what i mean by weight past the bend below

cheers
grant

felt, marabou, good old rabbit anything soft would work i think, but they look to be larger flies so anything that sheds water quick would be favourable, unless you have the rod to suit ... but i guess chamois hold water hey?? but conversely they are very thin, some soft synthetic blended with flash might look good (to me at least)

Most of the time my Candy gets chucked at summer/winter pelagics. I keep the translucence high and prefer no flash except synthetic fibre sheen. Unique hair in clear, smoke as belly colours and a clump of topping in olive on a gama #2 is a reliable bet.

I've never really thought about adding weight to a candy, except clousers and some offshore stuff that IGFA and me have been working.

Williams fiddled abut with beads to keel flies. I'm keen to see one.

Guys I have been adding a split shot to candies as a variation when I get sick of making Clousers Justin asked me to make for a Weipa trip I am making in May.

They look like they will fish ok

I use big eyes and Clear cure glue to hide and secure the shot.

so anyway I call it the "Candy shot"

I'm assuming a fish and not a misplaced cast?
