Just an example of the workable colors used on Monomoy.

If you were a country I would be contacting the pentagon about my concerns for the armament you are stockpiling... HOLY COW!

Just this shrimp box alone would put me in fat city. You're AMAZING!

You couldn't possibly have the time to work, raise a family, do house chores, even get a little nucky and still tie all those flies. God...You must be spending every evening at some fly shop, photographing the stock of Umpqua Feathers Merchants Flies.

Holy camolly, Those are some fantastic flies John. And your so right, I have been threatining to try that pattern in the clear/white color ever since last year on Monomoy when I saw them (took a while to realize what I was lookin at) in the shallows. Those babies can't miss. SUPER JOB !!!

John,
Sweet flies. They look like they may jump out of the box. One thought, anyway to kinda blend in a few whisps of the olive into the clear ones? Whenever I catch the grass shrimp they always seem to be a little bit colored but mostly clear.

I still can't believe 40" bass eat those things. I guess I should since 2 ton blue whales eat 4" krill. Amazing.

I'll take a dozen, clear, size 2 & 4.

Now you not only have to worry about me stealing your equipment but your fly boxes as well!

Excellent work John.

Thanks Jeff... by the way I have to be in Boston on Friday.... Nick, I am going to try that asl well.. There is no reason why a little Olive with White or yellow or tan with white won't work.. Also one of my Epoxy bonefish shrimp have two or three strands of red running thought the middle.... The "Aorta".
