The Stretch was designed with a long, thin profile to emulate ladyfish, ballyhoo, silver mullet, rainbow trout, lizard fish, river herring, tinker mackerel, Spanish sardines, sand eels, blueback herring, sugar trout and others. The Stretch descends through the water column almost horizontally. The Stretch has a slow body wobble and loose, seductive tail waggle when retrieved. Eyelet placement prevents snags when worked near the bottom. The Stretch has proven itself extremely effective using a variety of techniques throughout the entire water column.
