recent stripah ties

Preparing for what is likely to be a one and only striper outing this season in a few weeks. The slammer-type fly was inspired by Doogue's post. Also, the hook-up flies were taken from something I saw on here - Penguin, i believe?
I'd appreciate criticism/feedback. Just got a quality vice and I'm working on my stuff...

I agree. The big deceiver/slammer like fly in the first pic and the clousers in the last pic are as good as money in the bank!

Where will you be fishing?

looks like I'm hitting the cape the first weekend in June.... Cannot wait. Probably I will hit up as many types of water as possible, but definitely flats and beach environs, definitely all on foot...
I know to tie up a bunch of sandeel imitations... What else?

Not an expert but....

If you fish up in Pleasant Bay (Minister's Point and other spots with road access closer to Chatham) I would fish the herring style fly in your first photo. Or sand eel imitations should work fine.

With the limited data that I have for fishing the area I can say that on cloudy days in late May the bass appeared to like a little yellow in your clousers. Seuss out fished me handily one day with a yellow over white clouser while mine was olive over white. That was a rainy and crappy day.

The fish are not all that picky at this time of year. They are looking for easy calories!

Enjoy.

On the flats, I use the gotcha / deep minnow style fly tied to imitate a sand eel (hence "deep eel") a lot, as well as other flats tidbits, crabs, worms, flounder, etc. You don't need a huge fly for huge fish on the flats.

The reason I like this design comes from bonefishing on the flats - it keeps the hook point out of the bottom debris when you need it most to be free of crap.

People think the jigginess is the reason to use it, and that might be true off a boat or something but not on the flats.

It's all about leading the fish without spooking them, laying a 'trap' and pulling the trigger at the right time and you need to hook-up to do it.

You've picked the perfect time to fish the cape.
