Design Inspiration & Detail
After making this fly and taking a good look at it, I could tell it was going to be a must-have for ever fly-box when fishing Caribbean waters. The white Arctic Fox and grey bucktail make a perfect natural and neutral base. Adding a splash of pink and some crystal flash really gave the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Add silicone legs maybe. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.
This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – many other species (i.e. Pompano, other Jacks, etc.) will also take the fly.
