Hey Scottie....Do you have a recipe for the top and bottom patterns? They all look great.

Top pattern is just a craft fur tail with some chartreuse ice dub at the back and picked out  then home made eyes tied in. A merkin style body of tan EP then some silli legs just tied in at dumbells and allowed to come over the body.  As I'm targeting trigger fish I used a size four owner flyliner, but you could use your own preferred hook.

 

The bottom fly is just a turneffe crab, here's a video

I do dig those crab flies Scotsman, great work.

 

Here is a crease fly I did.  I had to cut off the original head and redo it.  The original was white but I colored the head red (hard to beat the old red head color pattern) but then I coated it with Silvercreek's resin and it left a very brittle coat that cracked whenI squeezed it slightly.  I pealed off the resin and then added Sally Hansens and the colors bled.  I then got pissed and took a razor to it.  I think I'll stick with what I usually do which is to coat it with fabric fusion instead

Popovich's Ultra Shrimp.  I didn't have the right color hackle to match the body but hopefully the fish aren't art critics

Getting ready for Snook season to open Monday. These are about 5" long and on 2/0 and 3/0 hooks. The shrimp is 4.5". Other than the shrimp these are all tied using mostly Farar blends. The one mullet has a bit of gray fish scale over the back.

Welcome Mondo. Love the flies especially the chartreuse ones. What is the giant black one meant to target? Down here a cobia would slurp that baby down fast.

Here you go fall flys....first one is an albie (little tunny) fly that works no matter what the bait.  It works in blitzing fish when stripped at a medium to slow speed like a easy meal.  The second is a Clouser Half/Half that works here in NJ, it's a fly that is eaten. Third fly is a peanut bunker that is a fall staple forage fish and next fly is a Holographic Crease Fly. The next is a Mullet fly which are running in Sept and Oct a favorite meal of bass and blues plus big fluke eat em. Late in Nov and Dec herring head this way so the last one is a sea herring.  I do carry other flys like Deceivers and Clousers and Popovics candies.
