I was amazed when I first opened the package from Harvey. The teasers were probably the most beautiful thing I've seen on a hook. You can tell that tying teasers must be an obsession for him as there isn't the slightest flaw. I know you guys have seen them on here and I have too, but I must say that I was even more impressed when I saw them in person. I picked up the sea robin pattern, the white or sand porgy pattern, and greenish blue one, and yellow pattern that resembles a spearing/sand eel.

I fished them on Sunday and the action was very slow for the whole boat for keepers but with the sand porgy pattern I was killing the shorts left and right. I also managed some shorts on the sea robin pattern.

I'm looking forward tofishing with them again and for those of you that thought about buying the teasers and hesitated, DONT. You will will not be disappointed. The work Harvey puts into these things are amazing.

Thanks again Harvey. I have some pics of the teasers but I can't find my cable to connect into the pc. I'm sure there are some on here though.

I have been using Harvey's trasers for ten years and still have some of his original patterns when he first started tying. Harvey is the "Rembrandt" of tyers. They are beautiful, durable and functional and catch fluke, sea bass, stripers, weaks and false albies with great success. His squid pattern is a particular favorite that slays big fluke.

I Dunno Al:

I have seen Harveys work and he does use other colors besides the brown, tan and grey that Rembrandt used..LOL!

His teasers are much nicer looking than any Rembrandt I could ever remember!

I use Harveys Teasers too. Caught a Fluke on one and a few Blues but no Bass yet. All though they may have added that extra touch to get then to bite my Storm Shad or Buck tail. They do look great and I have his phone number if anyone wants it PM me;)

I bought a few at the Freeport show over the winter, I haven't tried them yet, but I do agree, they are goergous
! Almost too nice to use, I'm afraid I'll lose them! Thank you for taking such pride in your craft, Harvey! You have a lot of fans here

Hey Paul that hook looks a little bent or out of shape is that just the way the picture was taken or have you caught some fish that started to straighten out the hook ?????

TEASERS

It is possible that I have every teaser Harvey makes for my fluke bag. What I like most is Harvey designs and makes his teasers for different fishing conditions and time of year. For example, the sea robin (orange/black) teaser for the spring out east, etc. I recently used his "CUT-BAIT" teasers out in Montauk with very good success. If you haven't already, give him a try, shoot him a PM and get hooked up ASAP. In fact, I'm about ready to order some large squids to use as a trailer setup...Good luck, Kevin r

I just spoke to Harvey he said he out of the Spearing ones right now and has to Tie new ones. I told him they ran a thread about your teasers he said really and I sent him the link. Hopefully he will check his e mail later and let everyone know how to order some of these great Teasers

those are the standard gamakatsu octopus (to my knowledge) and they are made slightly offset. They are a great hook and I use them for every species except tuna so far. I am going to try the HD octopus though this year.

to contact harvey, go to the area where it says private messages, send a message, and type in pnutbunker in the TO: box. not that complicated. :)

When I get a chance I'll find his email somewhere.
