Mine are done, just waiting on finishing up some other swaps before sending them all in!

AJ, you're going to like those Grassett's flies. A similar one is the Schminnow - a Sanibel Island classic. Perfect for beach snook in white:

and on the grass flats in orange:

I'd love to get in on this swap but by the time I get a fresh set of SW hooks it'll probably be too late. Next time!

The Schminnow is as easy as it gets:

Hook: Any O'Shaughnessy bend, straight eye SS hook - my go-to is a size 1 1x shank
Eyes: Black Bead Chain (some use mono, but I find that after a few fish I have a one-eyed fly as they tend to break off)
Thread: White Flat Waxed
Tail: Marabou same length as hook shank
Body: Pearl Estaz

Tie in the eyes; wrap thread to the bend; tie in the marabou (some tiers clip the tips, I don't); tie in your estaz; wrap thread to the front of the eyes; do the same with the estaz, whip finish and you're done. Too easy.

Thank you. It looked simple just wanted to get the ingredients right. Now I have a new one for the arsenal!
