It hadn't been too long since my friend Greg had released a couple of new materials and if you know Greg's material, it is always worth experimenting with. The two newer materials that ended up on my desk were Senyo's Laser Dub and Senyo's Shaggy Dub. I had been looking at the Shaggy Dub for some time knowing that there was a fly wanting to come out.
Below is the fly that came out of that brainstorming session and that went on to catch more fish on the flats than I could count. I hope you get the chance to tie some up and get em wet on a sand flat somewhere soon.

Get out there and find some nice sunny sand lit flats and give this fly a try! I guarantee you won't regret having done so! I'll be headed south in no time and you can guarantee a section of my fly box will be loaded with these!
