Design Inspiration & Detail

Another great fly for fishing the surf and backwaters of South Florida. The white body and red nose pattern goes back decades as an effective color combo for attracting fish. 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 Snook – jacks many other species will also take the fly.
