Nick Actually Big Dave, Sunday I hooked a silverside right through its top and bottom lips during a retrieve on SB Flats. It was as if he was trying to attack the fly, looked like I had baited the fly with it. He was released to fight again. They were all over the flats,jumping and shining in the sun.

nice...

Great flies!

The angel hair model must look awesome when wet. Have the silversides show up en masse yet? My brother fished boston harbor this weekend and said they were everywhere...

A numer of blues ignored my one inch silversides I put on and went for the two inch sand eel and clouser while they were blitzing peanut bunker I did not have these at the time... I did catch some on angel hair bait fish patterns of about two inches....but these flys are an attempt to match the hatch even more....and have bigger hooks.
Very Very nice John, bigger is better they say

Peanut Bunker - three types

These are all beautiful flies!

A newbie question though is just how big are they? In the 2 - 4 in. range? Bigger? Obviously, I need more time on the water, but any info/advice is a help.

Best regards, and see you in RI on the 28th.
