Good Snook, Great Fly

Here's my buddy Eric Treutel from Idaho on Day One of his annual trip with me here on Matlacha.  This 22-inch snook was our best catch of the morning after the tarpon stopped rolling.  It hit one of Eric's 1/0 Puglisi style baitfish patterns right at the mouth of a mangrove creek in the northern part of Matlacha Pass.  Take a close look at this fly if you plan on tying some snook patterns for yourself.  It has everything you'll need; big eyes, a hint of red gills, and a big white body.  A guaranteed snook killer.
