Enrico's Bay Anchovy

This is what Enrico Puglisi says about the anchovy fly. "False Albacore is an offshore fish and they feed on offshore baitfish such as anchovy, sardine, butterfish, and so on, baitfish that reach a pretty good size. So, why don't they take flies that exceed 2" in length when we fish for them inshore? My answer is very simple. False Albacore will come close to shore, not because they have nothing to eat offshore, but because they know that they will find tons of Bay Anchovy (Rainy Fish). They must love them. That's why every fall, like a Swiss watch, they show up. They will concentrate on them and nothing else. I believe this is the reason why we need to use very small size flies." Color, Chartreuse, Grey, Tan. Sizes: 1/0.

"I use this fly on the west coast of Fla. when early morning snook fishing but it also works as a good bass or larger panfish minnow. Try it in lakes with big bass and just slowly strip it in with floating line so it stays about four inches below the surface, you will see the hit before you feel it with the rush of water around it. Very durable flies too, they can take being eaten dozens of times before they are shredded. This not too long but bigtime fat 8 lb. bass just attacked one."
