I use all different colors but the #3 or #4 with either half a crappie minnow or half a fathead minnow hooked through the lips................tr able hooks are the only way to go on a swedish pimple..............wi th the red flipper

I usually put the flapper on the hook  I however prefer the single hook sometimes even a chain like they use on the hali's  I like to tip with a waxworm or 2 . If that aint working perch eye, minnow head, full minnow, or maybe just 2-4 spikes or mousies. I love pimples for perch and that is how i use them .    most often number 3 i think?   purple,blue, or glow red "tape" silver body with a single waxworm t-boned on the hook killer set-up.

plain silver and a copper are my favorite tipped with a minnow head.  I also fish a white and silver with green.  This is definitely my go to perch jig.  I have a couple set up like a hali with a 2" flouro dropper and a treble.  You see Doug Stange fish it this way a lot of times.

they dont really work the greatest on a tip up as a swedish pimple is made for jigging.........as for the flapper most swedish pimple already come with the red flapper installed on the snap ring by the treble hook...........just leave it the way it comes they are ready to be used right out of the package............... ........

I remember a guy on here who used a Swedish pimple, with the treble, with a shiner on it for his pike rig on  a tip up.Sounds like good idea, might even try it.

For perch either hook will work but if there is a chance for bluegills, and big bluegills love the small pimples with a wax worm, use the single hook. It can be a pain getting a treble out of their small mouth. I usually change to the single hook right away if I'm after pan fish.

Silver with a dead minnow hooked through the back works best for perch for me. Jig it of bottom a few times then let it sit for a while.
It'll eat.

I have about every color of Swedish pimple,both #2 and 3's.I like the the ice ones (orange,pink,white,black and red).I use these for perch,dalmon,trout and walley.Tip the trebble with maggots,minnows,chunk of night crawler or corn.I mostly dead stick them about 6"-12" off the bottom after bouncing them a few times on the mud.

White #2 with the "ice crackle" finish on one side. Have picked off perch, pickerel, bluegill, smelt, and even the occasional rainbow or brown with it. Sometimes treble hook sometimes single. Usually tip with spikes or mousies or a small slab of smelt along with a drop or 2 of "Smelt-Rite" attractant.  ;D Tight Lines!!

#2 white or silver, or anything that's easy to see and looks like a minnow, never noticed any change in activity between a red or yellow flapper, I use a treble hook for bigger fish and on slow days, but I'll switch over to a single hook when they're active just so I can get them off the hook and get it back down there, I normally tip the hook with a minnow first and then a grub, the grub helps keep the minnow from coming off the hook and if the fish don't like one thing on the hook, there's still something else for them to bite.
give me 5 good reasons to head home and I'll pretend to consider it.

Thatīs funny! Iīm sure they still work fine even if the history must be a misunderstanding.

Here is pics I posted earlier of an old swedish jig, 50 years old, and with a little bit of fantasy I guess you can see some likeness. For example: they both have treble hooks attached to it. ;D

http://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?topic=118474.0

This is what they look like nowadays:
 

I guess the evolution just went diffrent directions. Intresting.

   Take the hooks off and use it as a weight with two flies above it. Deadly deep water rig for perch. Pimple acts as attracter. Just one more use. :)

More akin to false advertising...  >:(

By The Way,, the lure in the link looks like an unbent Super Duper. I like the trebles you use however, are they available individually? I suck at fly tying/luremaking.  :-\

I have posted a little help how to make trebles scandinavian style: http://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?topic=118461.0

Or you can find some of them at pro scandinavia.

All you need is double component glue and powder in diffrent colors to mix. Chenille and/or Antron yarn if you like.
