Sometimes you can tweak a realistic into a fishable Critter. I took my Grass Shrimp and turned it into a 2 " shrimp for fish'N the flats. Lay this fly on the water near a tailing Bonefish. Yes Sir ...you guessed it. ! The only catch is, if you loose one of these you will need a couple of hours of Grief Counciling ! T.

That would also be fantastic in the mangroves fro a snook, but as you said when he breaks you off in the roots, I would probably swim after him to retrieve the fly.  I really like the way you did the tail it is outstanding.  Great,

That IS a beauty, but I don't even want to know how you tied it.  Any fly that is this complicated, I wouldn't want to fish with.

Nice, Man!

1. The captain is always right

2. It's the deckhand's fault
