Hi guy's
This year I want to work hard on my flyfishing for bass,in say'n that I cant resist
the temptation of see'n how many different species can be caught on the X layer.I am amazed
the way this lure works,maybe I'm out of place here but could there be a section of this site
set a side for a X layer catch results?????????? I say the results would be fantastic!'

You are right. I've had very good results on the xlayer yet...
It looks pretty much useless to my eyes. I'm very big on extremely subtle
movement in lures and, for soft plastics, very soft baits too.

Bites are, as we have said elsewhere, difficult to determine at times and the
more a fish tries to eat the bait before rejecting it, the better.

Xlayer comes in very high on my list for baits that fish like to hang on to.
However, my most successful SP is still the ubiquitous sluggo. This is mainly
because I've fished them for many more years.
Another great hang on bait is the Madness range. The Mother Worms and Father Shads
are extremely soft yet, they get the bites that last longer. I mean, they are easier
to detect and hit.

Xlayers sit in the "they hang on but they last a bit longer" bracket. Fish don't destroy them
so fast and, they aren't volatile unlike my other favourite "spindleworms" and "hazedongs".

Yes, an Xlayer challenge, I'm up for that..

Giant Ayu, 100% confidence.

So far I have seen bass, pollack, wrasse, flounder, mackerel and mullet on an XLayer - sure that loads more species can be nailed on them.

Steve,

If you are using them on jigheads try mounting them both ways up. Flat side up (to the sea surface) for normal and twitching and flat side down (to the sea bad) for sitting on or micro-twitching over the sea bed and rocks.

Best colures are Ayu followed by Shrimp&Minnow and French Perle.

I tend to use the Giant X-Layers for faster work and the normal ones for the rest (Saying that I had my best lure caught Wrasse last year on a Giant)

Thats sounds like a good idea gentlemen.

Last year we had Bass, Pollock, Coal Fish, Wrasse and Mackeral on mainly the Ayu colouration.

Although Im quite partial to the Giant Aurora Shad Xlayer !!
