Charlie, that is a very cool fly. I don't know much about the history of articulated flies but I have only seen a few that have such a sexy movement. The hard sideways turn (even a U turn) can be deadly to stripers.............and many other predatory fish. How much the snaky wiggle will make to fish is also something I don't know much about but it will sure make a difference to a lot of fishermen, no matter what the fish think. I'm wondering if Blane has tried tying it on a jig hook in order to have a hook up pattern, which can help reduce and even eliminate gill hooking.........important in fast action catch and release fishing. Anyway, it was fun to see the concept, tying sequence and the fly in action.

Dave
