Thread: Matching the Hatch

    Default Matching the Hatch

    Hey guys

    Here are three flies I tied this weekend, I would like to know if they are matching to the baitfish I tried to immatate. They are all FPF's on 5/0 Owner circles. This is for big fish, big leeries or shad in perticular.

    Please name the baitfish.

    B



    C



    I would like to hear your comments, good or bad.

    Thanks

    HI There,

    Your last fly could be a ''Gorrie''. Top one, ''Caranteen''.
