Today's addition to the Florida Flats Trip box are 6 Bendback flies.

There are 2 tan/black w/copper krystal flash - 2 all black w/copper krystal flash -2 white/chartreuse w/silver krystal flash.

All of them have a polar sparkle braid belly for some added color/flash and were tied on #4 Gamakatsu B10S stinger hooks.

These are great for fishing over grass and other near surface structure (or so I've been told). Hopefully the fish like them!

Those look great. Tie up a couple with only a few (like 3 or so) strands of krystal flash. Less is often more with flash materials, and it is good to have both.

I actually went a bit heavy intentionally. The water has been pretty dirty lately, so if it is when I get there, I have enough flash. If it is nice and clear or gin clear, I always carry a pair of scissors to snip a strand of two on the water.

Nothing fancy. I was just watching TV after my daughter went to bed and tied this monstrosity.

It is supposed to be like a yellow jacket and I may add some hackle around the body.

Finished up my swap flies earlier and now working my way through a dozen Shenk's Sculpins in black and another dozen in olive. After that I have to stock up on Shenk's White Minnow. No camera though so no pics tonight.

Also made some additions to my salt box. Heading to Florida in 16 days!

I made up (invented?) the shmullet and dirt worm. The shmullet is to imitate a shrimp or mullet depending on retrieve. It has a rubber tail flap that should make the thing wobble and make some noise. The dirt worm is to be used as a jig or to stir up mud and silt on an oyster flat (I hope!) Hackle to move some water and a bunny tail to look like a small mullet or shrimp eating off the bottom.
