I will jump in on this one. Not sure which pattern yet. Maybe a bendback Ray's fly or small ultra-hair pattern for the flats. I'll figure it out over the holidays and let you know for sure.

I am going to bow out on this one. Just doesn't seem worth it with only 5 participants.

I'll do some weighted sand eels for getting down quick and deep.

That would have made 7 participants if someone hadn't wimped out. Come on guys especially those of you with new fly tying kits join in and don't be bashful. Good oppurtunity to trade you first attempts for samples of what can be done.

I'll jump back in. Looks like ruffling a few feathers sparked some interest.

In a pinch

If you need another I will join in. I am new to tying so you will probably get bluefish quality flies from me.

If anyone in the Boston/Arlington area want to hook up and tie a couple, I would appreciate the help. I am going to First Light in Ipswitch for their weekly free tying flings, but every little bit helps.
