Jon - they are 6" ish.

and unweighted. I intend to fish them dead drift on a floating line at a cape cod bay UDL


I do have weighted patterns too, tyed on a 60 degree EC jig hook - they are rear weighted to make them dart :



that one has a lavender superhair wing. this one has a grey bucktail wing :



I got the idea from Dan Blantons website. under the mylar is lead wire at the back and chenille at the front to make an even body.

Mark.
