Another great tie as always Charlie!

My first reaction when I looked at the picture was peanut bunker!

I really like the un-cluttered look of this fly and the Amherst makes an awesome gillplate which is one of the most prominent features on tiny 1"-2" menhaden.

The Albies have finally started to put in an appearance in this neck of the woods and I think they'll be all over this one

p.s. Something I forgot to ask....

Do you do any special prep on Amherst feather before tying in - flattening the quill? I find that the quills are typically quite thick and uneven (even more so than GP Tippet) which makes getting a neat tie-in tricky.

When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
