Very nice; looks somewhat similar to one I've seen in Klausmeyer's book. That one should be quite productive!

Pretty good tie for a rookie .Tie that in olive or light tan and it would be a killer on the flats of Monomoy. Hope you get a chance to come East and fish the famed flats of Monomy.

I'd imagine that that pattern would be productive in any coastal fishery. I'm sure it would catch fish all along the Eastern seaboard, as I've used similar patterns from NJ down to the Keys (both sides) and have done quite well (blues, snappers, jacks, 'cuda, and so on). I tie it as small as a 6 and as large as a 1, and in various colors (cream, orange, olive, tan, and pink) as FishHawk denotes.

Ashley, Peter O'Reilly's 'Trout & Salmon flies of Ireland' has a salmon pattern called 'Yer Man' which is quite similar, apart from the colour scheme.

'Yer Man'

Hook: 2-6 for spring, 8-14 for summer/autumn.
Tail(Feelers): mixed red, orange & brown bucktail
Ribs: Oval gold tinsel & monofilament
Eyes 20-30lb burnt mono.
Body: Mixed red & claret seal fur
Hackle: Dark red
Shell back: 500 gauge polythene ribbed with the monofilament.

I've been noticing allot of Spec's chasing shrimp around the channels down here lately. I tied it for that purpose. I didn't use any weight and the tail is slightly elevated to keep it on top of the water, like a skipping shrimp being chased.

Later
