Albacore Flies

That's a sick double baitfish pattern!

Re nails, I was given a spoon fly from a guy from LA that used a fake nail upside-down. He used it for Reds and sea trout, still have it some where. We swapped a few flies, must have been 1999 or 2000, on the cracker bar no less!

The double -baitfish looks great. Assuming that's a plastic worm hook? Are those up to snuff for tuners? Just asking because I'd like to tie some.
I was thinking the same thing, all those bends were just asking to break, or straiten out.

I've never fly fished for tuna. And these are all good looking flies. How selective are these fish? I'd like to try it sometime.
How selective? - varies from eating the paint off the side of the boat to being super-picky about how a live bait swims. Generally speaking, you're in the game if you have something that reasonably approximates the primary prey they've been eating.
