BFS Special

What are you using? The BFS Special . A fly for Brewester Flats when the fish are keyed in on tiny grass shrimp. Body made with CLearCureGoo. Size 4 Gammy hook.

Bill, nice tie. I assume I know what BFS means, unless its not x-rated. Last year on a bayside creek, the bass were stacked waiting to go up the creek on the incoming. It was last of the outgoing and dead drifting patterns after pattern, nothing worked until...a size 4 Popovics shrimp nailed them. See you next month.

Todd, the grass shrimp seem to be in the upper third of the water column. They're very hard to see as they blend in nicely . FishHawk

Thanks Bill. I've tied some with a strip of foam under the body wrap. I've done that so they would suspend, but I wasn't sure just what I was aiming at. (ready,fire,aim).
