And yes, all those bass have gotten bigger.


Ah! From what I knew back when I chased them, SB popns crashed back in the late 80s early 90s. Regs changed and they rebounded with huge numbers of young bass. They've grown since and I see many photos of 40" fish now. Haven't followed things though to really know.

Ah,makes sense now. Sorry about that. They need to make it a gamefish.

Love your crab fly btw.

Thanks! That crab really does work. I've caught bonefish on it as well.Never had a chance to throw it at a permit. I guess that would be the ultimate test. The mesh allows it to sink fast. It does hit the water harder than a yarn or deer hair crab though so most of the time you really have to lead the fish (and hope they don't change direction) or the plop of the fly will spook the fish.
