The new era has arrived. Indeed, the kokanee world ain't flat no more !!!
This new blade has been tested for two years in lakes and reservoirs all of the West, Northwest, and British Columbia, and found to be very superior to the traditional flat dodger in most instances. Underwater movie studies have shown that kokanee are attracted to both dodger types. Attraction response is one thing. However, it is the biting response that makes "fish on." For kokanee (as well as trout), a single kokanee is less likely to hit a target lure than if two kokanee see and compete for the same target lure. This is the competition response, and is key to more successful fishing. A little competition among kokanee produces good things for the kokanee fisherman.
Among the features of all Fish With Gary™ Dodgers is the up front leader of lightweight flexible wire and beads, led by a willow spinner. With the smooth, natural action of our new Ultralight Offset Recurve Blade, the overall presentation is similar to a young kokanee traveling through the water chasing some morsel. When a real kokanee is drawn to the setup by the action of the dodger (attraction response), the setup suddenly triggers the competition response in the real kokanee. By using the same color and contrast lure behind the dodger, it makes it appear that whatever the first "kokanee" (our dodger) is chasing is also behind the first "kokanee" (our dodger). This makes it much more likely for the real kokanee to strike the lure. The kokanee biting response ("fish on") is more likely if this competition response is triggered.
No other dodger on the market stimulates this competition response.
This is also why it is so important that the colors and contrast scheme of the dodger be matched with the same color and contrast scheme of the lure. As can be seen in the next photo, the colors and contrasts are perfectly matched.
Professional guides and tournament winners know that the larger kokanee are often off to themselves during certain parts of the season. This entire Fish With Gary™ Dodger and Lure System provokes that extra competition response which translates into the biting response for these larger kokanee.
