Double 8 Flatulator Model / Choice Snagless Bucktail
39 available

$33.95

At the high-water mark of design and functionality are Choice Snagless Bucktails. Tried-and-true fish-attracting color patterns are elevated with premium materials and custom components. Using the backbone of specialized wire form construction, each lure is hand-tied with pattern-specific detail and capped with a custom color head. Around each lure body, additional lighter guage wires are formed into hook guards that protect each hook from snags. These guards are gently pushed below the hook and the tension is released when the fish bite down. This improved functionality not only fends off persistent snags, but will give any angler added confidence to fish areas otherwise often avoided such as flooded timber, bullrushes, lily pads, rock reefs and dense weedbeds. These hook guards can also be stowed over the bend of the hook for fishing in snag-free areas at your choosing for maximum hookup percentage.....and choice sponge paint patterned looks round out this innovative lure design.

These Double 8 models have double the vibration and are built tough for targeting muskies and pike. Flatulators get their name from the body weight of the lure, a repurposed CO2 cartridge that leaks out trapped air during the retrieve for a unique bubbling action! All cartridges are sponge paint patterned by hand over a base paint color or chrome plating. Each bucktail is crafted with extra long deer hair over marabou and generous amounts of premium Whiting hackle.
