    John Lloyd Park

    Hi guys!, just sharing some catches from last week at John U Lloyd park in Dania Beach. Question, can you fish on the beach on the other side of the inlet? right there in Ft Lauderdale? and can you cast from the rocks on the other side? Thanks.

    Ive been using an all white bunny fly, but later I've been using exclusively an Eat Me fly just like this one, tied on a 1/0 Aki Hook, the bigger snook hit the Eat Me Fly.

    What material is the eat me made of? Body looks like S&F blend but straighter. Olive back looks different. Been looking for a material like that for some patterns I tie. Thanks for any help.

    Hi guys,

    The material is nothing fancy, and very old school, it's called Ultra hair, which is nothing but crinkled monofilament thread (but once topped with flash....mmmmmm).

    I also tie this pattern with SF blend, and the last snook fell for it...the pattern looks better on the vise with the SF blend fibers,they are softer and maybe more prone to fouling but it does look better. with the SF blend I'll say its one of those pattern designed to catch angler's eye first and then catch fish!!!

    Ultra hair is cheaper and Snook couldn't care less...it actually holds a wider profile on the strip better and those nylon fibers do look translucent in the water.

    EP fibers on the other hand...I haven't master them...the learning curve for me me was bigger, and summer is here, so I'm sticking to what it works. Even my 6 year old got a hold of some mixed, loose fibers from my bench and made an eat me fly that he called "Sea Master" (see pic)

    ....sorry Eat me Fly...when you are in my house, you'll be called Sea Master from now on.

    Then he made this one

    Anyways...trust your patterns, master that double haul, and understand tides, moon, fish behavior, and I wish you luck...because, that's what it takes to catch fish in the surf.

    ...but you gotta show up, you can't catch Snook from your couch!.

    I'm likewise not thrilled with EP fiber. Been using Dazzle topped with Krystal Flash with S&F blend for the back for small nightfishing patterns but want something a little smoother for epoxy glass minnows. Fish probably couldnt care less but you know how it is : we care.

    Thanks for help, I'll try ultra hair.

    Nice work by your 6 yo. My Daughters a non starter but I have hopes my 20 month granddaughter. Maybe next year.

    Beautiful pictures Felipe. When you want to mess with the poly (non-EP)material I have come see me on a tuesday night at BPS. The stuff I get is nicer to work with and a lot CHEAPER than the ep.
