From reader Eric…
My first trip was in May and I and caught a dozen on plain old Gotchas on Acklins. I threw my whole box of popular flies into schools or cruising big ones with multiple refusals. I tied them all so they will always be my favorite. Here’s a photo of my first few efforts and my first bonefish… (day 1 of 6) -and saw it by myself! I’ve only been fly fishing for three years and had a few months of tying and I feel like I’ve hit the big time! I really enjoy your brain dumps.

Whoa Nellie: look at the length of the tails!?!? I would’ve thought that material would tickle the bone’s olfactory nerves and get a refusal.
I like a long wing… no complaints from me!
