Fly Patterns

Bonefish Clouser: Pale Orange

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 Hook (#4)
  • UTC Thread, 210, Black
  • Brass Eyes, Medium, Gold
  • Krystal Flash, Gold
  • Krystal Flash, Copper
  • Krystal Flash, Fluorescent Fire Orange
  • Bucktail, Pale Orange
  • Badger, Small

Design Inspiration & Detail

Another great fly for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. The natural colors and splash of pale orange 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. Add silicone legs maybe. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – many other species (i.e. Pompano, other Jacks, etc.) will also take the fly.
