:D I did up some SMALL epoxie sand eels, they are almost 2 inchs long, did them on a no.1 hook used the same colors that was on the ANCHOVIE fly. (NO marabou) . my fingers are to BIG for these little guys, the next one WILL be at least on a 1/0 I know sandeels should be GREEN in color BUT the ones where I have caught some 40"+ stripers were GOLD /BROWN in color. well heres the pic. not a real good pic, did it under a floresent bulb, an it bleached the color out .

Nice display Rich..You know that the color is fine in some locations on the Cape according to Juro..who has switched his fly colors depending on where he is fishing..When I am with him in Chatham he goes the chartreuse, green,type colors,,, your colors are his choose elsewhere.

Nice job. I has luck with very small Decievers when fishing for sea run trout. These small sandeels should be deadly. Is it possible to get a closer shot? FishHawk
