  1. Been working on a big sandeel pattern for surf stripers. I've gone with Bob Popovics Jiggie modified with long thin saddles and a chenille. It has to sink head first and maintain a sandeel shape while fishing the wash (the striper was caught with the fly in the shore break)
  2. Classic colors from the Bob Pond Striper Swiper on a Joe Blados Crease Fly
  3. Thank you Capt Bob and Fshng2 it's quite a compliment from other tyers. I've been tying up some bluefish flys for the spring. Blues come on the heels of the mackerel so here's one.
  4. Capt. Bob that sounds like fun for sure sharks in tight... orange is a fav of bluefish. Here's a Steve Farrar (SF)Blend in herring colors for springtime bluefish. Bob Pop Hollow pattern keeps it light to throw and SF is bright. I'm sure stripers would enhale this baby too!
  5. Winter has finally pushed the stripers off shore. Tying will keep me sane...red small Hollow with thin red saddles and red grizzly on top.
  6. I'm still fishing for school stripers here in the NJ surf, my bud had one today. Some fish still around small 18" to 27" monster. Any half way decent day and any moving water I'm still going for a little while. Besides this is when my wife gets to talk and catch up since mid-summer. Stripping down flys to save hooks and hourglass eyes, then cull out all flys that did not make the cut.
  7. Striper surf fishing in Northeast is under way. Lots of chances as big sandeels have moved inshore....Jiggies about 7" or Clousers tyed thin and long.
  8. Pete.....you're the best. I wish I had your life...you suck!
  9. Bob Popovics Hollow Flye in white, light yellow and steel blue....3/0 long shank Gami. No flash trying something different.
  10. Apart from losing the fig8 wraps you need with dumbells what is the change you get with this using cones instead. The forward placement of the head at the hook eye has a "head drop" as Clousers are tyed 1/3 back. Soft lead dumbbell eyes that sometimes break where Jiggy heads are tougher can take shells and rocks (sometimes my head).
  11. Mike the fly is tied with all the materials on the top of the shank. This will make the wing ride up like in unweighted Bonefish flies. I add a tiny amount sometimes to create a throat like on this fly. Here's Bob Popovics at a local club tying a Jiggy. https://youtu.be/CIAB-zITcZk
  12. Big nor'easter headed this way, fish will be on the move a quicker. Bigger baits moving in bigger schools. Bob Popovics Jiggy Flye in some olive yellow white flash with a pink throat....about 5.1/2" long. Stripers should love it.
  13. Dashboard fly porn redux.....albie tutti fruity size #6, chartruse bunny strip, mono tail support, flash, Senyo Lazer Dubbing head and abdomen.
  14. Mullet run in full swing here in NJ. Late September, full moon, rain and easterly winds cook'n early. Striper weather for sure....
