My good buddy Bob Popovics has come up with a new way to create a realistic surf candy. It’s called Fleye Foils and they will initially come in three different styles, a bay anchovy, a silverside, and a sand eel. No one knows baits as well as Mr. Popovics and there will be more baits added to his line in the near future. The foils apply to each side of the fly with a tab and are fixed in place by using epoxy or tuffleye to cover the fly. They have eyes, a lateral line and are are iridescent just like the real baits appear in nature. The surf candy was originally developed by Bob to be a bomb-proof, durable bait for toothy species like large bluefish. Bob has always been a great friend and mentor for me and I am very fortunate and honored to be able to help Bob with some of the new illustrations that will appear on his new packaging.  I will post them as soon as we get an approval on the illustrations. I am very excited about these new foils and can’t wait start tying with them.

This is the new logo I just created for Bob’s new Fleye Foil venture. This one has the bay anchovy represented. I did a sand eel and silverside (spearing) bait as well…

  1. Wow, I like that better than Gummy Minnows! I wish I had them fishing off Coney Island a few years back.
