Guys looking forward to this one. Atxdiscgolfer and I were in a swap a few years ago and he sent me a fly that I decided to use off the beach in the Bahamas and I managed to catch a small barracuda about 2' long or so. Really cool. Also, managed to catch 2 or 3 other fish and I still don't know what they were. Anyway, that fly was a bully special. If you go to the Bahamas be sure to drink Kalik Gold and eat some conch salad. Good stuff!

I haven't been to the Bahamas since I was a kid but now you have me wanting to go back! I was way too young to sample the local beer then but did manage to win $20 on a slot (they were pretty lenient with the age restrictions in the casinos back then). Never did get to fish either so I have a lot to make up for

Lil Dave it's sent. Atx..no we were there for my wife's 40th. My vacation time now is all spent in the Keys. I caught a bunch of snapper there the day after Thanksgiving. Bunch of Jacks too.

Dave it will require some taping but I'll try. The packaging I was referring too was the individual fly packaging.
