silverside fly -
By: surfNturf from NYC
The Cowen silverside fly is 100% bullet proof due to the synthetic materials used in the fly. I caught SEVERAL stripers and bluefish using this fly in the surf at the Vineyard this past summer and it never failed. Keep up the great work of offering winning patterns!
Good fly but not always durable -

I bought a few of these on a trip to Cape Cod and used them for striped bass. The appearance of the fly is great, but a couple of the flies lost most of their tails just from false casting. The materials weren't durable enough. I had a second color that didn't have this problem since it used artificial materials for the tail rather than bucktail, which just didn't hold up.
