Mine came in Monday, meant to let you know!
Really a great bunch of Albie killers, although methinks some other species will fall prey. I am going to try the "sippers" on crappie next week at Buggs Island, and they should work fine.

That's the spirit, Ed. Never hesitate to throw a fly designed
for another species. LMB's like redfish critter flies, crappies like bonefish flies, pike like shark/cobia flies, etc.

Hope ya catch some slabs. I caught my 1st crappie of the
year today on a # 8 white crazy charlie, but all of 4 inches. :oops:

Got mine today. Wow! :D What a great looking batch of flys. Although Im tempted to go with Hokie Eds idea on the crappie I think I will tuck them away for Oct-Nov.

Hey guys - next time somebody puts this together I'd be happy to pop them into the studio and play and do some creative shots with each and all of them. Might end up with something the maker could use as an avatar, or whatever. Could even start an archive here of useful patterns to refer to. Would give me a nice break from Realtor headshots and beach portraits in the off season.
