I only fished the Keys. I didn't use the top one last year. It's a Biscayne Bay fly. Click the image to open in full size.

Best luck was with Pink Puffs & Bonefish Biters on Long Is. Bahamas. in Nov.

Lots of spooky fish on windless days. We used size 8's & 6's...

jpfxi - thank you, thank you very much! Ya gotta love this: they (surgeon and phys. therapy guys) know how much I fish and how important it is to me. They've got me out in the snow casting a 6'6" 2wt a max of 10 feet as part of my rehab. I gotta tell ya, its mortifying.
LOL,
Gary
