Yes Warren they do....they see Gary's chatreuse creations from Morris island and yell over to NM...very distracting!!!
He has a blinding array of flies in that color. Spoke to him recently and he is tying a chatreuse crab pattern.
"If it's natural, it ain't no use" !!!
Have see his wedding pic...chartreuse tux.
Pete....tied a 2nd one...came out really well......tied it in tan for the flats...liked the double bead chain idea....got rid of the mini rattle and it lays flat now.
Will try olive next...for some reason, almost every shrimp fly I have caught a striper on, has been olive...go figure.
I really think this fly will produce....thanks for figuring it out.
PS: put it in your book
