John,
What was the water depth and temp. Hey while you're at it how about some gps co-ords...

If the @#$@#$* computer systems will hold out for a few more hours I'm going to hit it tomorrow morning. All I've got is 325gr so I was curious about the depth you're hitting them at. I will resort to spin gear if conditions dictate but would like to get some of those fatties on the fly.

Nice looking flies.

Jim..I was using my 12 weigth Reel on my 10 wt....650 grain.... it seemed the fish were down LOW... not in the 10 to 20 water column..old fashioned jigging... The water depth out there is about 30 feet ...for miles.... and even with the grain... we were getting an "angle" on the lines.... so I am not positive as to the exact depth...but the sink and retreve did not work... that is...no hits in 10 to 20 feet...only hits on the bottom...jig.

Ah...Dave... hope you had fun taking the commuter rail home... it's fun looking out the window... Mike... the owner of the boat carries three spinning rods ... I did not use a spinning rod... and since we are sharing...I want to introduce my "Fat Albert" south beach fly... any purists out there as to whether this is a fly...Please, just leave me alone... Here is an effective fly for fly rod jigging off that beach in those conditions... very effective and easy to tye... it's just the three coatings of epoxy are a pain.... Tie up a couple when you don't have your heavy grain line but need to absolutly get down.

Off South Beach...

John,

That is a very interesting looking fly you have there. How did you make the head (prior to epoxy) and what size hooks? Looks like the ticket when you need to "get down and get funky"!

Best regards,

-Doc

Hi John,
Is the "rats arse" fly posted anywhere in the archives. I had heard about it but never seen one before.
Cheers,
DK

Rooster, the Rats Ass is one of my favorites. Originally designed by Harry Koons, he tied it in white, by varying the colors it becomes an anytime fly.
Simple, simple tie. Start with a good size set of Clouser eyes, I prefer a 2/0 hook, then add a Deciever tail, 2 pair concave and a last pair convex. Add a little flash. The body is crosscut bunny palmered up the shank and tied off behind the eyes. build up a head and coat with epoxy. Love the way bunny moves!

Doc...it's a 4/0 Trey Combs Big Game.... I simply place the cone over the shank up to the eye...tye in like you usually tye in the cone... then simply tye in the super or unique hair...white on the bottom, then flip and put in the guts with purple, then flash then blend olive and chartruese fibers...then your first application of epoxy in the cone and around the fibers on the hook shank.... then build up with a second coat after you put the eyes on.. then your third and/or forth to make a "bulb" shape.
