Yesterday while at the doc's for a visit, he was showing me pics of his son's fish caught on the hot lure in Portugal. I got to looking at it, and thought...."that would be a neat fly." So I promised him 3 flies for his own testing on his next trip. I was a 2 1/2" mackerel-marked lure with a green flank fading to a yellow belly. Here's what I came up with.
Never been fished. Have no idea if it will catch a damned thing. But it was fun to put together.
