you might be intersted to know I field tested my grass shrimp pattern with my R&D team(group of bluegill that stay by my dock just under the feeder) and they concur its a fish catcher.The smaller fish were not able to take the fly so it was able to get down to the bigger fish.These fish feed almost exscluively on food from the feeder and rarley take any other offering.I was pleasently supprised.I hope all will have similar sucess with it.

:crazy: Its amazing that you can turn into such a DETAIL oriented person tying flies. A millimeter to short, not enough legs, that eye isnt the same as this one, etc. :wallbash: I just have to keep telling myself that nothing in nature is exactly the same. Makes me feel better. :huh: Oh well to late to turn back now. Almost finished the end is in sight :cheers: Main thing is I feel each one will fish well Hope to have them in the mail next week. Unless the fish keep bitting like today :D

Fred,

 

Since we only need nine, how about we meet at Acadiana Day (April 5 - Acadiana Fly Fisher's Field Day in Lafayette, LA), and I'll tie them there.

I dropped mine in the mail today. They are coming by Air so you could have them by weeks end.

Once they are sent out I will post a link to the pattern I used incase anyone wants to tie them......Kerry

By the way they may be a little large for smaller Bluegills as well. The patterns I found were for larger species so I tied accordingly....
