Those are real nice flies Striblue! What kind of eyes did you use on those flies?
I experimented a bit, and tied a few minnow patterns recently as well, using four different colours of Angel Hair.

^ I had to use Doll Eyes because I ran out of the Epoxy Eyes.

^ This one is a little larger and has a silver cone-head in front of the eyes for added weight.

^ This is a much smaller version (#10 hook) that I'll use for sea-run cutthroat trout and coho (silver) salmon, in the rivers.

I haven't been Striper fishing before, but I'd assume these flies could work for Open Ocean Coho fishing that we have here in BC, since they feed on Herring, Needlefish, Sandlance, etc.
