Pulse Disc from Brinefly Innovations
Adding a Pulse Disc to your fly will make the fly look like it’s swimming. Really swimming. It makes the fly wiggle like a real baitfish. Order a pack and see how each different size of Pulse Disc makes the different sizes of flies move through the water.
Simply tie a non slip loop with the Pulse Disc between the knot and the fly and your fly comes to life. It can also be used with duosnaps for toothy fish, and is available in seven sizes for #6 - 5/0 hooks. It is available in packs of six, as well as handy cost saving multi-packs of 24 units for #6 - 1/0 and #1/0 - 5/0 hooks.
The Pulse Disc works so well because it causes the same hydro-acoustical signature put out by the bait fish. The side to side movement is the same as the bait fish, and you can actually feel the pulsation in your hand.
The Pulse Disc has been tested by Bob Popovics, published author and guru in the fly fishing industry, who encouraged the production of the Pulse Disc prototype. See the video below.
