This fly is important to have in your fly box for many game fish species. It is especially good in low light or off-colored water. Peacocks, Golden Dorado and Striped Bass love this fly. The vibrant chartreuse, red and black colors are often tied together for multiple species of game fish.
The design behind the Space Invader is amazing. When fishing for Peacock Bass it is important to have a fly that is easy to cast due to the number of casts an angler can make in a day. It is also important to have a fly that sinks at the same rate or slower than the fly line you are using. Most of the time anglers cast into some type of heavy cover or shallow water near the bank. If the fly sinks too fast anglers will get hung up in structure way too often. The Space Invader will hover or sink slowly over the top of downed trees and sticks in the water. It is the most important fly in your fly box for Peacock Bass. The durability of the fly is awesome due to the epoxy head and because of the ease of cast, the fly is great for a variety of species of fish in both fresh and saltwater.
