Jay Nicholas of ties his Cutthroat Shimmer Fringe Surf Candy inspired by the Bob Popovics’ Surf Candy fly style.

Whereas Bob created his original Surf Candy to enhance the durability factor of flies he was fishing in the salt, Jay’s use of the fly style is principally intended to offer a very slim, transparent baitfish profile to West Coast species including Sea Run Cutthroat, Black Rockfish, and Coho salmon.
