    Most likely squid.

    If they were running 200+ gr jigs then they are likely around 150'-250'.

    Thanks. No albacore on the pattern this year, although I did miss a grab on what was one of the very few shots I had this year for getting one on the fly. The only fish landed on the new pattern this year was a 4# rockfish off the jetty so at least it's been broken in.

    I'm not counting the albacore that came un-pinned when trolling (yes, I was THAT desperate). Interestingly, that was one of 2 troll takes we had all day and both came unhooked. The first early in the day was on a standard double hook squid-like troll lure (a "clone"). The brief hookup I had using this fly was late in the day and that fish passed up an array of much larger troll lures and another fly to hit the anchovy pattern. Again, these fish have incredible vision and can make out very subtle differences in that ultra-clear water.
