With over 25 years in pattern development, we concluded that the most versatile and effective waterfowl pattern was one that was purely grass. After photographing a variety grass blades along water edges and flooded fields, we saw that each BLADE was unique and in the background was thatch of dead or pressed down lesser grass.
With these two elements, we set out to create the perfect pure grass pattern by arranging each blade of grass in natural positions with shadows falling across each other on a thatch background. The thatch background with its small grass moving from light to dark spots creates the depth and distance from the larger blades to give Shadow Grass Blades a realistic, 3D appearance and superior ability to break up a hunter’s outline. Each blade of grass was selected for its unique coloration and position to duplicate the grass edges found all over the country.
