    That second set is tied on a different looking hook. Can you tell us what it is? Also, I'm guessing those are about a size 10?

    Dennis,
    Ya talkin' ta me?
    Those are what we used to call "English Style Bait Hooks". I'm sure they are still made by some manufacturers but I'm working off a couple of boxes I bought from the late Bruce Ferguson's estate several years ago. They are size 8 (one of the boxes dates back to Herter's and the other is Mustad 37140). I actually think a size 10 or smaller would be a better choice; a one-inch-long mysid is about the maximum size they grow to.

    The Crazy Charlie/Plankton is very effective. I also tie Will Sand's fly, sometimes substituting the mono eyes with small bead chain lacquered black. Off white to tannish, pale green, and also black.

    Here are a few more patterns I've fished.
    It seems some days the rezzies will eat anything you throw at them. Other days they can ge as finicky as some spring creek trout.
    All part of the game of trying to figure it out. When all else fails I tie on a inch long or so chartreuse over white clouser.
