Blaze of life stimulates instinct.
When bass chase baitfish they become very careful. Even when they are repeating boil they don’t pay attention on doubtful lures.
To deceive them, only realistic appearance is not enough or only natural action is not enough either. Realistic appearance plus natural action are necessary to get more bite.
Mylar minnow has realistic shape and eye, plus mylar tube that generates flashing like fish scale as a reflector. Then Mylar minnow acquired super realistic appearance that normal worm can never express.
Action is also fantastic. Body roll creates blink flashing and tail vibrates sensitively. Thus Mylar minnow has both appeal power and ability to generate bite.
The ultimate unite of appearance and action has created amazing liveliness, Mylar minnow drives finicky fish crazy.
「Body shape sought after natural action」
Mylar minnow sought after compatible action. One is roll action that exaggerate flashing and the other is sensitive tail action that makes finicky bass bite.
Roll action is produced by escaping from water pressure under the body. So, thick body that catches water pressure well has the advantage.
But tail should be thin and slim to create sensitive tail action that makes finicky bass bite.
What solved this contradiction drastically is fin under the tail like pillar.
Although tail is thin and slim,it catches water well and creates roll action because it has moderate tension.
Still more, this fin creates high pitch vibration, because it reduces surplus movement of tail.
It is effective when you use wacky setting of weightless rig, it can tempt bass by creating ripple on one spot and when you twitch it sideways it slides very well.
「Super real flashing」
Mylar minnow adopted mylar tube as a reflector. That is the best material for fly fishing which pursue visible appeal. And one of O.S.P staff has been keeping it as secret because the reaction of bass is quite different.
Sweet diffused reflection created by special transparency and knit touch reproduce flashing of bait fish precisely. So, it gathers bass from wide range and elicits bite.
Also, you can adjust flashing degree by selecting the color of mylar tube. And you can select the best appeal according to water and fish condition.
This clear mylar flashes slightly and make finicky bass bite even in clear water. The tougher the condition is the more it becomes reliable. Sophisticated bass can never resist its appeal.
Adopted color: ghost wakasagi, pink lady, shirauo
This has the closest resemblance with the flashing of actual baitfish, so this is almighty color that you can feel the flashing power of mylar tube regardless of water and weather.
Adopted color: ayu, wakasagi
It has high appeal strong glittering flashing, so it is the most effective in muddy water or low light condition. An instant strong flashing has the most reaction effect among 4 types.
Adopted color: stain gold, watermelon ayu, pound gill, black gold orange belly
This has strong flashing but at the same time this has natural glitter of baitfish. It appeals by flashing but not too much impact, so this is the standard color for actual fishing.
Adopted color: wakasagi flash, ginmoroko, tasty shad, ayu flash, co gill
Flickering flashing created by rolling action of rod shake appeals to bass and elicit bite with the effect of high pitch vibration of tail. Both retrieving middle range with shaking and one-spot shaking are effective.
This body has buoyancy, it can appeal bass naturally without tail down. Roll and high pitch tail action is effective, but flashing dart by sharp twitching is the trump to elicit reaction bite.
“Piku piku” is a kind of technique to perform dying baitfish. Laying mylar minnow on the surface of water and making ripple by shaking on the spot. If you shake a little harder, it moves sideways, that technique is called “Yoko yoko”. The hook is penetrated through mylar tube, you do not have to worry about losing worm when you skip it or fighting with bass.
When you twitch the lure it darts irregularly sometimes jumping out of water. This action preforms panic bait escaping the surface of the water. Especially, flashing that occurs when it turns right and left triggers bite instinct of bass.
