Spam

Understand that some of the surf casters have had good luck using SPAM as bait when there are no herring, eels or mackeral available for bait. They put it into a fine mesh bag to prevent deteriation and then hook it bag and all. They say there is an ingrediant in the product that drives the bass mad. Has anyone tried this or is it an old wives tale?

I have heard similar folklore... Never tried it because I don't imagine spam would cast to well on a fly rod

Anyone have any spam patterns... ( he he he he)

SPAM

Hee!Hee! Very funny.

The idea is to use it without the can.

Perhaps a pattern using peppermint crystal flash woven into a cube could immitate what is in the can. Maybe using a long shanked hook would permit several woven cubes in a row. You could always throw on some peacock herl as a wing to imitate seaweed or asparagus.

What...ever Cheju. This is a serious forum. You do it your way I'll do it mine. Your idea definitely has merits though.

The designer of this fly who by his request will remain anonomous says it imitates a fish with his head stuck in a can spam.

Why is this attractive? Striper gets stuck fish and spam or stuck fish with spam in him. It's two treats in one.

Good thought, Sagebrush!

Just proves my original thought, that there is something in SPAM that drives stripers wild. Otherwise, why would one put its head into a SPAM can?

I have heard that the cows like a spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, eggs and spam fly without quite so much spam in it.

Seriously....it could be the fat in the product. I dunno about Bass but when I was a kid we used to use salami as bait for bluefish and they went crazy for the stuff. Of course, you could tie an old boot to a line and the bluefish would probably go for it....but really any oily meat worked.

Wow--the Spam Fly looks very similar to my secret weapon in Montauk--the Cheez Doodle Fly:
