I was hopin for an early striper trip with Billres...but with all the global warming....we had to put it off till later this spring maybe in March or so we can start chasing them. "big Al" here in town tells me that most all of the ponds around here are load with pickeral too...so I'm hoping he'll show me around to one or two of them......he swears my pond has to have them too...but in 12 yrs or so...I've never caught one, seen one or heard of any being caught.

Brad....I thought I'd try concocting something big for striper too using the same principal...these actually swim and look pretty good in the water.....not sure if they'll interest the striper or not....but if they don't...then they'll go in the gar box. :D


As a side note to all....I'm gonna have a huge pile of rabbit strips to share with everyone at Lyin & Tyin ....so if your planning on coming and the thought of buying any rabbit strips even crossed your mind....wait and see what I have available at the show.

Good looking flies. I like the double bunny types....

One tip on stripers, they attack the eyes. Even on an eel, they attack the head. Good, clear distinct eyes greatly enhance striper lures. Most of those look like they'll work fine.

I agree....and actually I wish I had some even bigger eyes than what are on these....I really think big eyes make all the difference on most "bass flies" wether Largemouth,smallmouth or striper.

You are correct on both counts, Croakmeister, they do look good and they will work in "salty water".
