    Critiquing it, but then you ask how he ties it? Funny. I believe bottom fish coloring is often a function of . . . well, the bottom. So, he could tie a ton of different variations.

    kelvin, all of those flies were flat awesome. Nice work.

    thanks I left the tail long so it would drag on the bottom and cause a wake the same way scurrying flounder do
    I took it out today and hooked a nice Searun

    Yo, Denny. He was asking for feedback. I gave him some; flounders do not have long tails - look at a picture. His pattern had a dominant brown background. I'm a marine biologist and I've spent thousands of hours in the intertidal and subtidal in Washington and collected lots of flounders. Brown is not a common substrate color. Black, gray, and white are.

    In the thread, there were several options suggested for bodies, such as bugskin and foam. I was curious to see what he chose.

    very pretty, but reinventing the wheel, and at the stone wheel stage at that. Wheels have evolved. Just tie a spoon fly, get some killer action on the drop while you're at it. http://www.bvipirate.com/spoonfly/index.html

    And yes, they cast like a leaf. But so does a gurgler.

    Very pretty is an insult now? I used to tie them for a shop, I think I can handle it... But I don't tie them for my own use, because as I said. Casts like a leaf. I do the pugliese approach for my sculpin and flat fish. They cast better for me. I just searched up a thread I started called "peta sculpin" because it was tied with sea hair, no animal products. The pic disappeared:hmmm: I'll see if I can find one in my boxes for you.
