Having decent success stalking stripers on a local beach flat... I tied some EP fleeing crabs that seem to work better than anything else I’ve thrown. By far the least amount of refusals. Problem is, these EP crabs almost always have a significant “plop” when they land and have spooked several fish doing so. The catch 22 is I need lead eyes. The most active part of the flat is adjacent to a near beach drop off. The fish are cruising in a 4-6 trough and pop out onto the flat to nose around then back to the trough. So I need this fly to get down quick but a quiet presentation. FYI, using an intermediate line. Thanks for any info!!
