    That would work really well with our fresh water perch species here in Europe as well.Nice fly….might just have to tie a couple of those to see how they get on.

    Hey Tony, how are you. Please email me details about what’s up with you and your family. Miss you my friend.

    Great fly, Tony! Can surf perch really handle a #1 or #2 hook? Or is this also intended for other species, with #6 for the surf perch?

    I’m looking for a surf perch fly fishing club in the area of the central Oregon coast. Thanks Roger
