Doc...right now atleast where I fish on the Cape the peanut bunker are about an inch long..as far as I can tell.... cut open one of the blues I caught last week and the stomach was packed with one inch bunker as well.....In situations where there is heavey bait and alot of activity I want my fly to stand out so these are tyed about 2 inches...I should have put a quarter next to them. 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.
