The Next PolarLite Changer is a highly articulated, impressionistic baitfish streamer used to target many freshwater and saltwater gamefish species.
The fly is tied predominantly with a sensitive, ultra-lightweight synthetic fiber that causes the fly to constantly “breathe” like a polar wind and undulate in the water. This “movement-without-movement” creates the impression of a live baitfish that is always moving, even between strips or when suspending in the water column.
Upon entering the water, the synthetic PolarLite Fiber material absorbs water to quickly get the fly down into the strike zone with an enticing, natural swimming action, but immediately sheds the water with the first false cast making the fly surprisingly light and easy to cast.
The PolarLite Changer has a length of 5" (12.5cm) and is offered as either a single-hook (front) or double-hook version (front and rear). This 7-body-segment articulated fly is available in 6 different color variations giving you options for most fisheries and target species.
Natural Swimming Action
The innovative use of special materials realistically mimics the spine and muscle of a baitfish to give it a unique, enticing swimming action.
Impressionistic Baitfish Profile
Catch the eye of the fish you're targeting with this enticing pattern.
The PolarLite Changer's length of about 5" (12.5cm) makes it a great general purpose fly that can be used to target a wide variety of species in different fisheries.
Available in 6 color variations, allowing you to “match the hatch” for success in most fisheries and target species.
Lightweight, synthetic materials
Tied with the ultra-lightweight, synthetic PolarLite Fiber material that sheds water and has incredible natural movement, while keeping the fly light and easy to cast.
The tying method and the high percentage of modern, synthetic materials used give you a tough, durable fly that should stand up to dozens of landed fish.
Q: Why are the flies sometimes not in stock?
A: GC flies are in high demand and they tend to sell out very quickly. These are specialized, custom-tied flies that are technically difficult and time consuming to tie to the correct specifications. As a result, our factory sometimes cannot produce them fast enough and therefore are not always available.
Q: How durable are the flies?
A: Very! The precise method the flies are tied, and the high percentage of modern, synthetic materials used in them make for a tough, hardy fly that should stand up to dozens of landed fish.
Q: Is it easy to cast?
A: Upon entering the water, the synthetic polar fiber material absorbs water to quickly get the fly down into the strike zone with an enticing, natural swimming action, but immediately sheds the water with the first false cast making the fly surprisingly light and easy to cast with a 7-weight or higher fly rod.
Q: Can they be used in saltwater?
A: Yes! The flies can be used in both fresh and saltwater. The articulated shanks are made of stainless spring steel and the Kona hooks have a high-quality black-nickel finish.
Q: How many articulated segments does the fly have?
A: Double-hook version: 7 segments: the front hook + 5 articulated fish spine shanks + back hook (double hook version).
Q: What hooks does it use?
A: The PolarLite Changer uses a Kona Big Game Hunter 4/0 hook in front and Kona Big Game Hunter #4 in the tail (for the double-hook version). These are ultra-sharp, high quality, short shank hooks designed specifically for Game Changer style flies.
