Floating / Fast Sinking


#12 Buddha


The body shape of the GH50 FLATSIDE minnow delivers a tight, ultra high-pitch action regardless of retrieve speed or current. The minnow profile’s flat sides give off outsized flash and displacement, drawing predatory feeders with aggression. Twitches of the rod generate a wide side-to-side darting action, emulating a natural, panicked reaction that activates neutral targets. Sculpted down to the smallest detail, each GH50 is hand finished in carefully selected Japanese stream and river patterns to induce compulsive reaction bites.

GH50 FLATSIDE hunts through rocks and current seams with a relentless, fast-paced action that triggers the natural predatory instincts of veteran trout. The floating variant can also draw unique strikes on a surface dead-drift or slow subsurface retrieve when forage rises in the water column. Proprietary barbless Buddha treble hooks keep fish pinned throughout the fight and allow for a quick release of treasured catches.
