The Global FlyFisher - The Largest and Best Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
Garfish can be pursuated to take larger flies like this Copper Shrimp, but really small, bright flies size 10-14 are the right choice for these large eyed hunters. The problem is one of hooking. The fish will see and strike the larger fly, but the hook will rarely penetrate the hard mouth. Smaller flies have a greater chance of sticking once they have a grip.
