Cowen's Magnum Baitfish

Big stripers love big baitfish. This Herring fly pattern just scored its second 20 lb. class tippet world record and was less than ½ pound off the women's all tackle world record. This big Herring fly offers the big profile that trophy stripers love. Excellent fly pattern with a depth charge line for probing rips and deep structure. In a blitz situation, use an intermediate line to get the Herring fly just under the surface and strip hard, as if the fly were fleeing the scene. Size 4/0. Length 8".

"Since this is advertised as a bunker, not peanut bunker fly, it needs to be almost double the size. with that said, its a great large peanut bunker imitiation. Id LOVE to see orvis make this in a 12" size"

"Nicely tied, somewhat misleading is that the COWEN'S GHOST CUDA/SHARK FLY is just as large as this fly and even has a larger profile. This is a great fly, I was just hoping for something a bit more "magnum.""

"Back in Nov 2007, Joan Sharrot of Staten Island, NY caught a 27+ lb striped bass on 20 lb test tippet that shattered the current women's record by over 6 lbs. Joan was using the olive bunker version of the magnum baitfish. This is the 2nd IGFA line class world record striped bass taken on this patten."
