Cowen's Silverside

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Cowen’s Silverside perfectly imitates one of the most important baitfish of the Atlantic season. It’s 3” length also equals a wide range of other baitfish, including sand eels and spearing, making it an ideal general pattern. The Epoxy body mimics perfectly the quick, darting motion of the natural and is as essential as the Clouser and Deceiver when pursuing Bonito and False Albacore as well as Stripers. Slight weight keeps it under the surface in a current. Color, Olive/Silver.
