Thanks for the feedback. I'll do some more blues. So far I've been nailing the cutties on the orange patterns, but haven't had a chance to test these on the resident silvers.
I have a set of these that are weighted like charlies and gotcha's (eyes in the front as well as others with the eyes down by the hook bend). These just have a few wraps of lead. The smaller ones (size 10) have no added weight, but the hooks are kinda heavy.... Simple to tie and the fish dig 'em.
