All great stuff! Good advice on all counts. There is nothing etched in granite when it comes to feeding fish and it pays to have lots in your bag of tricks. I still think a top water fly like a small Gurgler will get there attention real quick. it sure worked on the longtail tuna in Australia - same situation - same feeding and breezing pattern. It's worth a try.
I would like to see your anchovy pattern so please post it.
It looked like you were having fun chasing those fish; and fishing with Henry is always a hoot.
Have a great fall season,
