I've been using Jed's designs for over 20 years. And hundreds of fish, know just how well they work!!!

But, you must also understand how to pick the right one, to match the conditions. You'll have to read the book for that.

Roostertails are good... but the bangtail with the yellow body and black spots with a copper blade is simply the balls! I also love the mepps algia glo series in a no.4 with the half black half white body and the white blade with a pink tip... also the Balls.. or simply a red roostertail... caught me a lot of fish..

Yeah if any what GMR said...really though nothing beats
panther martin: black/gold/yellow dots.... and yellow/gold/red dots
blue fox: all silver...blue and silver...silver and red (NEW)...and the rainbow holigraphic one. (NOT THE ONE THATS ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A BABY RAINBOW...I THINK THAT WAS OUTLAWED)
good luck hope this helped.

The favorite color of all is the one that the fish are biting on ^^

bring some sponge or some rough fiberish stuff that you can scratch a blade with. Simply making the surface not too shiny caught me my first salmonid on the next cast on the same hole. Take the sponge and drag it up and down the blade so the surface is taken off.. .yeah

Dont forget tape and/or sharpies
