    Cool video. The way the fly suspends and flutters is super. Great action!

    Hey Boz

    I hope you like it you will be getting one as part of the saltwater streamer swap. This has been a very effective pattern for striped bass in my area but will work for just about anything that eats bait fish. They are easy to tie once you do a few, and like you said the action is very life like. I usually tie them in olive over white with a hint of yellow and they will pass as a bunker, mullet or herring.

    Yes, thanks Jim. That was a really good video. I haven't tied any flies in ages, and wasn't any good at it when I did. But I got a good vise now and will start tying again and hopefully learn how to do it better and faster.

    I use these alot in late fall. The Stripers love them but the Bluefish destroy them so I put all feather flies away until late fall.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.
