    Hi Colin,

    Only 3 weeks until I head for Punta Allen Fishing Club, so thanks for the great article....I have the Sand and Tan Funky Fibre and similar in Calf Tail. I shall make sure I tie some without flash...I'm thinking Size 6 for the Bone flies and Sz 2 for the Permit crab flies would you concur?
    Thanks for the photo of the Tarpon fly, what size hook is that tied on?

    Sorry one more question, what colour and material is the body for the Bonefish fly, can't see from the photo.

    Cheers, T

    Hi T. The funky fibre was 'mixed sand' colour. Yes, the hook sizes you stated are correct.
    The Tarpon fly was tied on an Sc 16 Gamakatsu circle hook 1/0. Good luck in PA. Just one thing, I've caught a couple of permit in PA and lost a few more....all to sz 6 tan gotchas with pink legs. No luck with crab patterns. Even the Tarpon were eating shrimp��

    Always a good read! Amused to see Aunty’s weather forecast. Cornwall never gets so hot or still...
    Growing old disgracefully!
