Orvis Ratings and Reviews

Cowen's Silverside

Cowen's Silverside perfectly imitates one of the most important baitfish of the Atlantic season. Its 3" length also equals a wide range of other saltwater baitfish, including sand eels and spearing, making it an ideal general saltwater fly pattern. The Epoxy body mimics perfectly the quick, darting motion of the natural and is as essential as the Clouser and Deceiver when pursuing Bonito and False Albacore, as well as Stripers. Slight weight keeps this saltwater fly under the surface in a current. In olive/silver.In sizes: 2. Length 3".

silverside fly,

"The Cowen silverside fly is 100% bullet proof due to the synthetic materials used in the fly. I caught SEVERAL stripers and bluefish using this fly in the surf at the Vineyard this past summer and it never failed. Keep up the great work of offering winning patterns!"

"I bought a few of these on a trip to Cape Cod and used them for striped bass. The appearance of the fly is great, but a couple of the flies lost most of their tails just from false casting. The materials weren't durable enough. I had a second color that didn't have this problem since it used artificial materials for the tail rather than bucktail, which just didn't hold up."
