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.
Very Very nice John, bigger is better they say
