Very very nice dry flies.
I have never tried dry flies on peacock bass and you sure give me the inspiration to tie one at the end of my tippet and present it to them.

Cool blog. Keep blogging.

Hi Edward,

Thank you for your compliments. Do give the dry flies a try. You'll find it a very different experience from the usual blind casting for peacock bass.

Have fun and do visit often for updates
