A few from this morning. Big Jim you mentioned the Chesapeake so the first thing that came to mind was a weed less fly for speckled trout. I usually use bend backs for specks in the grass but they don't leave much shank to tie on. I have found the best way to tie in the guard is to pass it thru the eye of the hook bend it with my fingers and trim to length, once it is secured it can be bent out of the way to finish the tie.
I don't always fly fish but when I do I prefer salt water. Stay salty my freinds
