Hmmm, I recall seeing some of Enrico P's creations - incredibly realistic.

All right, cat's out of the bag! My secret hopes of being first to develop a flounder pattern first have been dashed! :hehe:

Why don't we have a flounder fly contest, let the readership vote for the winner? We can have a $5 entry fee to cover the prize.

I have some ideas for a flounder imitation, but it uses mostly "non-traditional" materials. I'll give it a try and see how it comes out. Since I've never see a juvie flounder, what size are we talking here? Maybe 2" long? If they need to be much bigger than that I think my proposed pattern would be very difficult to cast.

Flounder fly contest would be fun!

Quentin,

I've seen flounder fry less than 1 inch long back in the UK. They were white/translucent and hung out at the top of the tidal section of river estuaries in huge numbers.

I've spotted them on the Cape and elsewehere anything up to six inches of more.

Stripers go nuts over flounder juvies, I've seen them go sideways onto the shallows on the bayside flats for flounder. Creel studies I've read also indicate high consumption levels as well. These are 2-3" long in general although can be as small as 1" or large enough to consider young adults. I have been targeting the 2" class based on what I've observed on the flats. Once this thing is over I have a good story about a flounder fly I accidentally invented and caught a lot of fish on. :hehe:

Juro..I tried one back in May and posted a pic on the archive under "It's no fluke" flounder fly..Can not put it here since the pic is already on the forum but it has not been tried yet, but it was done with crab material type foan with hackles along the edge to creat a slight fin action all along the body. I really wanted to go back to the drawing board though.

John, this should be a good experiment for this winter. Let's run this contest through the fly show or casting clave dates so we can put all the entries into a display.
