Design Inspiration & Detail

Special thanks to Davis Brown for sharing this fly. Another great fly for fishing the backwaters of South Florida. The natural shrimp colors and various appendages (legs, eyes, antennule, etc.) are perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. Be creative and change up colors.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Snook and Redfish – jacks many other species will also take the fly. Toss this up within two feet of the mangrove line, it’s lethal.
