    Great shots of the sandlance out of the water. The midline stripe is exactly the shade of the "ocean green" Saltwater Krystal Flash I use for my lateral lines on clousers. Pity they don't sell it any longer.

    For some reason that weird little tail stands out to me, hopefully it does to the fish as well

    Thanks for the prototype fly Pat. It was too pretty to fish today.

    Dimebrite stated in another thread that a Coho would hit the head of a fly if the eyes looked real. I tyed up this one my idea of an adult sand lance. After tying it I'm worried about not tying a stinger on it. Now all I need is some slivers to try them on. image.jpg
