Somebody has to say it, might as well be me. The bones are on the Wall, was unofficial until yesterday, I hooked up twice and lost both to lobster traps. Lots a pots this season. I swear the bait was bay anchovies cause the water was almost red from them, big schools. Drop was dead, all action was on the rise.

Slinger, your time of the year has just started! No more sleep for a few months...Albies will be here soon to drive them out. I know that you have tied up a lot of those secret flies for the fast movers and hopefully did not lose them :lildevl: . Someday I will hook and land one of those guys :D

Stick to the flies you told me about and you'll hook up. My only hook up on a Albie was with a rainbait fly . FishHawk

"Mushwings"?

Angel hair with a fancy hackle tail?

Your right as usual Fred :wink: Those fancy hackles do find that Softex to be a bit repugnant though. But, if you tie them down real well first then they can handle it :tsk_tsk:

Todays headlines, "2 men struck by lightning while fishing on the West Wall". Those storms m0ove in pretty fast when your a mile out on the wall.
