Don't be afraid to throw larger flies, 2s and 4s. I had fish move off their travel path and pick up stationary rabbit flies. That's my version of a mantis shrimp fly that worked pretty well on some marl flats.
In NAS now awaiting Pineapple Air flight down. Full moon early next week, and thanks for the reminder, Catspaw - brought some big uglies for when all else fails
Back home the 8th - will report back.
