Hi all, haven't posted in a long time. Just wanted to share the flies I tied for my upcoming saltwater trip to Mexico. This is going to be my first saltwater trip and I've been tying for the last few months gradually building what I think covers the basics of what I'll need. I'm leaving in 4 days for a week targetting Roosterfish, Dorado (mahimahi), Sailfish, Marlin and Tuna. They are not the best ties, but should be good enough for these aggressive fish. I've tied mostly on tubes, but a few regular hooks too just for good measure. The count is at 98... Hope I have enough for the whole week!! Haha!
I've got some big Billfish flies for trolling. Lots of sardina patterns made of either flash fiber (which should hold a certain form when stripping madly) and angel hair (for more flash, but doesn't hold its form as well). Crease flies for topwater action. A few synthetic clousers to get down deep if needed. And a few mullet patterns to mix things up a bit!
Well wish me luck! I'll try to post a report if I catch anything!!!!
