3" 1.5g Protail Fly (Inshore)
The Protail Flys are designed to imitate micro-forage with an ultra-life-like swimming action and profile. Several years in the making, the Hogy Protail Fly has deep roots from Capt. Mike's time as an Orvis-endorsed fly fishing guide on Cape Cod. These heavy-duty softbait flys are made with the same durable soft plastic as our popular pre-rigged Protail Series.

The protails were the game changer. They did their job especially when the Albies were being finicky!
Just returned from a five-day Albie fishing trip to Watch Hill, RI and Montauk, NY. On this trip I tried your Pop n’ Fly technique for the first time. The results were unbelievable. I actually lost count of the number of Albies I caught during the trip. I also landed a Bonito, 31in Striped Bass and a Bluefish with the Pop n’ Fly to complete my first grand slam.
Perfect for albies
Just received a bunch of these flies that I plan on using for albies. They look like they should be perfect for when the fish are on the rain bait or anything that is too small for epoxies. Will let you know the results later in the week!
Quality per usual
I needed a realistic light weight option for customers to throw when targeting striped bass that are keyed in on rain bait. The realism and simplicity of this fly is perfect. I am also looking forward to using them when I target Albies in the coming weeks!
