Fly Patterns

Recreate fly patterns at home! Materials used in making this fly have been included below. Always keep in mind your local fly-fishing store will most likely have the materials referenced, and typically for less. Materials can also be found at Amazon or any other major on-line resource.

Fly-Tying Materials

  • Mustad 34007SS (#4)
  • UTC 210, fluorescent pink
  • Brass Eyes, medium, nickel
  • Krystal Flash, silver
  • Krystal Flash, red pearl
  • Bucktail, magenta
  • Bucktail, pink

Design Inspiration & Detail

This fly is not only super fast to tie, but very effective when it comes to chasing Bones and Permit. It scores high when fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. It also performs really well in the turtle grass or weedy environments. The multi shades of magenta pale pink are perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. As always, adding a splash of crystal flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
