I'm putting together a fly box for a customer with my favorite patterns for the Jersey Shore.

"By the way the fish were a little tough last night. They were around but you had to work for them and then all of a sudden we rolled up in this one light and low and behold 10-12 snook were on the eat and bum rushed the fly. Got one to the boat
And the fly popped out. - The crew with me just didn't want to work for
Them so we went in with only that result."
I'm proud to supply Capt. Neill. I'll come down there soon and we will kick it old school with a few 20 snook nights like we used to.

I want to give a big shot out to A Marblehead Flyfisher where I purchased all of these materials. I'd also like to recognize my buddy Rick for all the tying advice over the years and my buddy Neill who has banged more snook on these flies than I have. His feedback has proven invaluable to the development of this pattern over the years.
