Dick Brown Report

I just got a good report from Dick on the use of the Blue Crab in the Bahamas...good in the sence that it was honest and informative... to make a long e-mail short.. he thinks the fly maybe to heavy and the splash factor spooked them... interesting how some species behave differently... a striper does not seem to have that problem....anyway he suggested that I work on the use of the belly material and keep at perfecting it for Bonefish which I will do... he thinks the shape is fine..but hard to tell if they get spooked at the landing. Report like this are good even if they don't say the fly was great...it only gives me more determination to change the carapace but still use the feathers. He offered to try any improvements ... I hope to go down there as well next year so.. I will make this fly work.
