    Here's my beach box, I try and cover everything in one box....RIGHT!!! It is updated frequently but not recently, Huh ??
    You can tell I like alot a Cutthroat Squimps, clousers (tube and regular) and some flat wings. I think I need to tie some more and get a bigger box....

    Hey Tony, Pat guessed it, I use them with a slip indie but only on a incoming tide and only on a full moon:)
    Nick is correct, I switch out the size of hooks for either cutt's, coho or great whites..... But you knew that !!!

    The first photo shows my "go to" subsurface patterns which are tied on HMH small tube material except for two flies.

    The second photo shows my "go to" top water patterns which are are all tied on HMH micro tube material.

    Diggin the Coho Popsicle Stick Larry! Nice adaptation. I use your original for SRC quite often. Do you have a recipe for the coho version?

    A new tie to try out this weekend. Not my pattern but I used what I had. White over purple over chartreuse and topped with peacock krystal flash. Other flash in there too. I think it looks like it will fish!

    Nice shape on that one. It reminds me to ask If anyone has had poblems with the cut off part of the hook shearing through the stinger wire. My clippers tend to leave a sharp point that I will have to file down in the future. Haven't lost a fish because of it, but I have lose a couple perfectly good clousers because of it. Cut right through 15 lb mono this morning.
