The original wiggle tail by Paolo Pacchiarini is a great way of adding life-like action to your flies. It is a proven way of attracting predatory fish such as pike, bass, perch, large trout; you name it, and have resulted in many big catches throughout the world.
The advantage of the wiggle tail is twofold: the vibration from the tail stimulates the lateral line even during dark or muddy water conditions, and the flash from the tail mimics the scales of a fleeing baitfish and provides a visual cue.
The tails can be directly tied to the hook but benefit from being attached using an open snap (tied on hook)/closed snap (tied on tail) combo, which together allows for quick changes to a different coloured tail if the situation dictates.
The XXL wiggle tail is an overall great choice for pike flies.
