This Fly Tie Friday’s Episode – Translating lures to flies

Yes, lures have reached a peak in performance – over time and quality – and they are deadly in Lower Laguna Madre conditions. But, a great challenge for those of us who have the time, is to translate those deadly lures into fly forms.

This video, from long ago, gives you the idea, the concept of tying flies that will mimmic some of the lure types that are known to be deadly in Saltwater along the Texas Gulf Coast. Translating lures into flies is nothing new! I am sure you have your own shrimp patterns and more! Feel free to comment, and show us what you do to cross over from lures to flies!
