Tod- you should stop by for a beer and we can make some plans - I'll be wrapping up the wiring this weekend.

|Tod D||Roopster - A la Adrian, I tied up some smallish, shrimp-like flies on size 4 tinned eagle claw hooks. Have not fished them, but they seem like they may be the ticket. I'll send a couple over your way if you'd like... TD|

|Dble Haul||FWIW, Adrian's pattern is in the Warmwater Archive under the title "PB". It looks pretty darned good.|

Thanks guys - will try some simple grizzly/ estatz palmering and see what happens.

|flyfisha1||Roop - Crab larvae, called zoea (if I recall correctly), are very similar in appearance to small, clear shrimp with an extended rostrum (the spine sticking out of the shrimp's head).|

Adrian (who is having fun in the sun) came up with a very innovative crab hatch pattern I've been curious to see applied to the situation you describe. Might come up in searches... but I am sure he'll reply when he returns.
He picked a good week to get out of dodge!

|FishHawk||Try a size 4 fly that matches †he color and shape. Make the body round and a wing with some flash. Worked for me. FishHawk|

Crab hatch fly?
Ran across a crab hatch, I think, last season. The stripers were in gin clear water sipping and rolling - couldn't buy a hit.
Thinking of tying something small and clear - size 6 or 8. Any suggestions?
