I am already anticipating the arrival of Fat Albert, I know its still a little ways off. Here is a fly I tied to imitate some chovy's a buddy and I found in early May at a local salt pond.
thin white saddle tied in flat over platform
pearl body braid
light tan finn raccoon wing with a little olive ice dub topping
BT throat with a little senyos laser dub over(bottom fly I substituted red calftail for BT)
hard as nails to coat JC eyes and brush a little over ice dub to tame it
