Description

Adding some noise can make a fly more productive. You can place a rattle inside some Mylar tubing or embed it in epoxy for best results. These rattles are laboratory Pyrex glass, extra durable so it won't break in tough action. Package of 10 rattles.

Other Details

Length is about 2 cm for all sizes. Rattles now have rounded or blunt (not pointed) ends.

great for rattle flies.

Reviewer: from Bamberg, SC US

I use the 4mm rattle in all of my rattle flies. Insert rattle into hollow mylar cord and tie on the fly. Very audible without being too big to work with.

Good rattle but heavy

Reviewer: from Houston, TX

Fantastic rattle for subsurface flies. I've found it to be too heavy for effective use on topwater patterns.

Nice and noisy

Reviewer: from Manhattan, KS

These are easy to work with and make a nice rattle in the water. They do take up a lot of room on the hook, though, so are best reserved for pretty large flies. Even with the 3mm, I had a little trouble getting them on size 6 streamers and having the winging material set right.

works...but

Reviewer: from Fredericksburg, VA US

I tie these to my crawfish pattern, using a length of 1"-2" 20+ lb line. I use superglue then coat with epoxy. Not full proof and I still lose them after a number of strikes.
Once I figure out how to secure these. I'll post again.
