    That fly, on a small saltwater hook would make a killer False Albacore (Bonita) fly. I'll have to borrow that pattern.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    I'm not a saltwater man, but given the proper hook and proportions, it certainly would catch just about anything. I use a 2X long or 3X long hook and several different shades of white/gray chenille. I use either holographic mylar cord or Wapsi Mirage cord. Both work great. I've caught everything from white bass to longnose gar on them. I usually use a size 8 or size 10 hook.

    Kept it simple again last night and tied up a couple Alexandra's for the Winged Wet Swap.
    I did a slight variation of this fly in that i included both the red ibis sub and peacock sword in the tail. I've seen it tied with either alone.
    I also included the red ibis sub in the cheeks, again, its been tied with and without the cheeks. For the throat i used black schlappen fibers, and they work at treat i think.
    Have a gander...The lighting in the picture is poor, so you dont get the full color of the swords, but they are really iridescent.

    Sorry for the lighting issues
