    Will do Evan. This fly was a prototype of sorts. Just trying to figure out some different materials but I will make it more sparse

    Good to see that someone understands what pinks really bite. I think I may even not do mine in pink just to prove a point.

    I'm a fan of relatively small stuff too, but I also caught lots of fish on heavily weighted 3" long flies 2 years ago too fellas. I think it matters both which system, and where on that system you're fishing to decide fly size myself.

    Sure, bigger flies work. Just not nearly as well from my experience.

    We never fished said system together last year, and it's a bit different. Maybe this year? The retreive was the same though.

    Im thinking of tying mine on saltwater safe hooks, so they can serve double duty.
    Smaller makes sense...they eat krill and plankton after all

    Think I'll kick out a 1970s version of Lady Gaga! Mini-skirt, stilletos, and hi-vis wig.
