    I was lucky enough to meet up with Dave yesterday and he gave me one of these super cool patterns! I was stoked to be able to get my hands on one so I could get a better idea how it was constructed.

    I am heading out on the beach tomorrow. I generally don't fish flies that I didn't tie myself but I think I'll have to make an exception for this one

    Thanks all!!
    It was a long time project that Clints swap forced me to finalize. With most swaps, I tie and go, these things were done and then broken back down three times to find the right mixture.

    Nick Clayton Always a pleasure connecting with you, I felt super out of context in the Starbucks Apron. Thank you for the flies yourself, I sense perch/crappie fest. Grats on your Final!

    SeattleFarq Glad it worked! Yes the eyes are the weakness. I tried superglue and a coating of goo, but nahh they get hammered. Any fine 4mm eye will replace it.
