Should work . Maybe a Hollow Fly type of Flounder. Try it . Just tie it like the regular fly but 90 degrees to the shank of the hook. Worth a try. FishHawk:D

John, I think this one is really "cute"! and often times the "cute" factor will work better than anything else....
Do you use these for Stripers?, on the flats?

John,

Margie says if you teach me how to tie the Mini-Flounder, she will do another dinner for you and Elizabeth this summer. (Actually dinner is on regardless, but she wants to see how you do it.)
