|In the 1970s, some tournament
bass anglers began to insert small rattle chambers into their plastic
worms to appeal to large-mouth bass.
Rattle chambers are made from plastic, glass, or metal. Each chamber
contains several small ball bearings that strike against the chamber
and produce a rattling or clicking sound when the capsule is moved.
Flies incorporating these rattle chambers started to appear in
the 1980 mostly for saltwater gamefish.
I hadn't thought much about this for some years until Danny Smith
started tying Bass and Pike flies this year with glass rattles.
I thought I'd give them a go.
