Captain Brian Vaughn of Off the Hook Charters, Inc. off of Hilton Head Island with a big Jack Crevalle on the fly. Nice footwork! Certainly somebody we want to go fishing with as soon as we can! Check him out at www.OffTheHookCharters.com and get a load of some of his artwork at www.OriginalFishPrints.com. Good stuff Brian!
This is a great little pattern tied here by Ryan Gabert of Dakota Angler & Outfitter. I've used this pattern, or one very similar, quite a bit in recent years as I've thrown more and more "small" streamers. In my opinion a size 6 streamer with catch more fish than an articulated pair of size 2s and you'll still get a look from the bruisers!
Great use of foam for a segmented body.... These techniques may very well work for most any dry fly pattern that has a little bulk (stonefly, etc.). Can't wait to try a few out on the Big Hole in June!
