    LOL -
    or wait for corn season...- pull the husks back, core the entire cob and slip your leader through, 10/0 hook, troll behind the boat.

    My flies are in the mail.
    7 'original' tube flies (nicknamed "Shock and Awe")
    They have been effective locally and abroad on Silvers, Rockfish, Lingcod, Tuna and several other species.

    I am putting mine in the mail tomorrow. I can't remember what the pattern is called. Anil showed me some killer patterns on Saturday and I tied some of them up.

    Andy,
    We looked at some 'Sea Bait' patterns when you came in. Many people are familiar with Trey Combs 'Sea Habbit' flies, but the unique head on these flies was developed Mark Waslick for a tube fly that he eventually called a 'Sea Bait'.
    I am looking forward to seeing them.

    Ah yes, the sea habbit flies. Thats what they were called. I didnt tie them on tubes, but they are still cool ;)
    Those flies are really fun to tie, I tied a dozen just cause I was having fun with it.

    Andy - got your Sea Habits in the mail - nice color selections! I agree - big flies are fun to tie - more rewarding to me than bugs.

    Will be epoxying the 5" Cabo Candies this weekend during the Lord of the Rings fest.

    Hey y'all

    I was supposed to get on a plane for Kodiak yesterday, but there were some problems with the airlines:reallymad so I am leaving today instead.

    Anyways, if you havent sent the streamers to my house yet, just send them to my address in Kodiak . The shipping should be the same, it'll just take two weeks instead of two days :thumb
