Fly Patterns

Keylime Crust: A Bonefish Clouser for the Keys

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 chartreuse
  • Beadchain Eyes, large, gold
  • Krystal Flash, rainbow/ pearl
  • Crystal Flash, mirror (manufactured by Rumpf)
  • Bucktail, camel
  • Arctic Fox Fur, white

Design Inspiration & Detail

Another great fly for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. The natural colors and splash of chartreuse 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.
