There is perhaps no other tuna bait on the market more hyped than the California Flyer. This is a truly original design brought to the market, and the hype behind them is real. A game-changing bluefin/yellowfin tuna product, and most definitely a Company to watch for future innovation in the Offshore Sportfishing industry. These baits were designed to be pulled off a kite.
California Flyer Co. on their California Flyer bait:
"At the confluence of sportfishing’s past and future, the present skips gingerly across the afternoon texture of a lively ocean. Erased from its jaunt in a blast of furious whitewash, the west coast’s first endemic flying fish lure delivers the punch of a 10/0 Jobu into the roof of a Bluefin’s mouth, before sliding up the spectra for another deployment. Now available for anglers of every creed and classification. From the heart of the bight comes 2020’s definitive creation; The Original California Flyer, from Costa Mesa based California Flyer Co. Featuring durable rubber construction, a signature bonded paint process, removable and replaceable wings, and the most realistic profile ever offered to the market, the California Flyer is quickly becoming the bait of choice for commercial, charter, and recreational operations.

- 1 x Ultra durable and realistic California Flyer body
