Dang, Bud. I just finished thanking Bob for his suggestion and cussing myself for a lack of the imagination to switch to worm flies when you suggest crab flies - not that I reject your advice. Quite the contrary. The Mosquito Lagoon is now my home waters, and you can bet I had several merkin and fleeing crab flies in my fly box, but I was too caught up with the sight of so many (and some big) stripers within roll casting distance from the sand. I'll bet those fish would have hopped all over a #6 crab fly.
I'm an old dog fly fisherman but that's no excuse for not swapping patterns when the first successful pattern went sour. I hope my experience coupled with the foregoing suggestions will encourage more creative thought than I was capable of.
