c LeBo, perfect size IMO. Smaller fly will catch everything. If its too big it might put off some fish. :(
FlyFishin'Jam, great ties. laker prob my fav. Chartreuse always a catcher.

Thanks Piker20, at certain times i have found chinook and coho really fond of the chartreuse flies, going to do some ocean fishing from the shore on the West Coast in a few months, probably for evenings around the mouth of the river, big long casts and stripping back for stacked up and moving fish. Probably similar to your ocean trout fishing?

The best part is I don't have to buy floatant! Floats like a cork (matchstick) :rolleyes:

Here is a GREAT streamer for those lunkers who like a nice and silent presentation! It's put a few good bass and browns under my belt, so I hope you like it and tie a few.:) I prefer a size 12 or 14 but you can easily change it to fit your needs with a longer hook, different colors, etc.

Thank You and Tight Lines,
Carson LeBoeuf
