John ... you work for AJ lures? Aiden James is the name that comes up at the end of the video. That looks like a good mouse, but it looks heavy enough to cast on a medium action spinning rod. Looks almost like you're fly fishing with a "Snagproof" lure.
I own AJ Lures but love to dust off the old fly rod off from time to time!
The mouse fly actually weighs less than the clouser minnows that we use for striper fishing. I did try to cast it on traditional gear and even with my ultra-light spinning gear it only went about 8 feet. Also, the weight of the fly line gives it a unique action when stripping. I've never used another fly with this dive-dart action, have you?
never tried any "snagproof" products...do you like their stuff?
I guess I assumed the mouse you used was the same as the mouse in the picture at the end of the video. I'd like to see what that fly looks like up close. I have a couple of popper flies with two hooks, Articulated, I think they call them. You can kind of walk the dog with them.
Dahlberg Divers do have a good dive/darting action to them, but I couldn't see the action on your fly quite as well as I'd like, so I don't know if they are the same kind of action.
Again, I do like the video, and I do think your mouse looks good, but I'd like to see it in better detail.
Snagproof lures are great, in my opinion. the hollow plastic body clears the hook points easily for good hook sets. The lures cast well but float wonderfully, as long as you remember to squeeze the water out of them about every third cast or so. They are my go to frog pattern when I am using a bait caster for bass in heavy cover.
