Caloosa Bug, no doubt you are correct. Thanks for the tip on the wide gap worm hooks.

Greetings TX, this is the place if your primary vice involves a vise. Those are some very good ties and don't worry about slimming down those Clousers, the toothy fish will take care of that.

Thanks guys. I had snook in mind, but I bet a redfish would eat it. Sure is fun playing with materials ...

I just watched the drunken shrimp. I think I have everything to tie that up tonight, if dispatch leaves us alone long enough!

Thanks! Had a redfish come up and either swipe and miss or sip and spit the same fly.

FlatsRoamer, I never could get the black redfish worm video to load ... Using a mobile hotspot with sketchy service down here. But here's my attempt at the drunken shrimp with what I had on-hand.Attached File  20161104_011631-01-800x535.jpeg   215.29KB   0 downloadsAttached File  20161104_011616-01-800x559.jpeg   111.74KB   0 downloads

Well, at least some of them work some of the time ... Playing around, started to tie one of Flats' drunken shrimps, then turned it into a sort of fancy clouser ... Worked!
