As a side note, tarpon love shrimp flies. They were noticeably more aggressive to a large shrimp pattern I put in front of them this spring over other patterns, but that could also be a result of local preferences in the habitat I was fishing.

Great looking flies Slinger!

Thank you all very much for the compliments. These are a ridiculously easy tie, it`s the material that makes them look so good. Been using this fly for 25 yrs. (P.S.- pre synthetic ) they were made with plain bucktail and caught plenty. But my current train of thinking is that any pattern can benifit from DNA. The only problem with this bug is that the carapice tends to shred after a few fish, a coat of Hard Head will eliminate that problem or just tie on another, they cost about a quarter to make.

I'll take a two dozen in orange and olive! Excellent work Steve. Got a bunch of fish on your DNA Chovies.
Caught a pretty big bass last Friday night before the cold front hit on a Orange GP in RI. Going to spend a lot more time swinging shrimp patterns this year. I've neglected them in the past except on the southern flats.

What I would like to try if it's a bluebird day is throwing some shrimp on a 5wt with a floating line at some picky fish on the Flats. I think the 5wt would be the way to get these guys but it's always the wind that throws you a curve ball. I'm making a 8wt this season so that will be my secret weapon. It will be fun trying.
