I decided to keep this one in the traditional Tutti Frutti colors and I told my friends it was staying on for the duration until it caught a Striper. I hit the water at 12:58 pm and in 9 minutes the new fly was on the board.
The first fish was not that big but it was a start and the next fish was bigger and as the fish came they got bigger. I was now thinking small, big, bigger and biggest.
I finally got to what would be the biggest fish and when I reached for the camera, it was missing.
After the Initial panic attack. I figured get the fish back in the water and proceeded to back track to look for the camera. I walked the beach and also looked in the water for 3 hours and them I thought check the last place I took my last picture of the fish. I did not think to check that spot at first because I had been in and out of my sling pack a number of times and never noticed the camera was missing, especially because I keep it in a bright orange case. Anyway when I got back to the last place I used it, there it was,
I did not get a picture of the biggest fish but I at least still had the camera. A good trade in the end.
I think I like my new fly and I am sure it will get to pose in a lot more pictures in the future
