  1. Updated fly for this season!
  2. Hoo Flies
  3. I have been using circles for stripers and Bluefish since 2017 and I never felt I was losing fish or missing hook sets. As long as the line is relatively tight, stripers tend to suck the fly and turn so they almost hook them self on those cycles and never have to go get the hook on the gills. I can also use a smaller hook if I use a cyrcle. That said, I normally tie in both types of hooks.
  4. Quick afternoon project. It is 12 inches long and 7 inches wide. I will be working on the spinning hardware today. Final results to come but between measuring a few wood scraps, cutting, nailing and adding the two hinges it took approximately 1 hour to finish this part of the project.
  5. No, the rattle in fact makes the fly more negative.
  6. Thanks. This is roughly 1/4 of an inch thick block of foam. I taper and tie it to the back of the hook then fold it to the front. I tie it firmly but not too tight to avoid cutting the foam. Use ultra-glue to help anchoring it. This specific fly caught many Stripers before I took the picture and it did not even rotate given the good base built and glued before working my way to the front of the fly.
  7. It must be winter... and the endless urge to tie... "CRI Fly" Candy Rattled Inverted

  11. For sale is my “like new” gold C-Vex 9/12 fly reel. This is serial number #398 and one of the legendary made in USA back in 2001. I bought 2 reels, fished one hard and this one basically saw very little action and has been in my drawer for the past 10 years. It has no dings, scratches or marks on the frame. Drag is in perfect condition all o-rings look like new. Comes with original pouch, side switching tool, original box (serial number on the box is from my other reel). Spool is the large arbor 9/10. Selling for $500, shipped to USA with PayPal. Sorry but no trades.
