3 minute Glass Eel

This pattern is an absolute must if you fish for sea run browns. Extremely quick to tie and very realistic. This pattern I developed to imitate the small glass eels that in the past couple of years arrived in huge numbers around our coast line, and the sea trout feast upon them. If you use the blue/ silver mix legs from the squid bait these also make a great sand eel pattern.

For the Tobis (sand eel) pattern I use two longer legs tied in at the side of each other this give great movement when fished.
