    Of course you can fish a sunken terrestrial pattern. Not a new idea at all, as Bruce noted. There are even sunken hopper patterns as well.

    It just is not nearly as much fun.

    Oops, didn't notice. Photo made it look like standard size to my eye. Try them in olive as well if you haven't already. Excellent pattern for small mays, although I only fish them #18 and smaller.

    Thanks for this. The lures are of questionable use to me, except maybe for rock cod, but the dropper rig he uses is quite interesting and I might have to experiment a bit with that style.
