Design Inspiration & Detail
Just last week, I bumped into several folks walking the lagoon side of Tigertail Beach on Marco Island, FL. All seemed like locals who frequent the fishing spot. Each made a reference to using Deceivers, Charlies, and Clousers all having some sort of flash and shade of pink. No need to tell me twice – looking to get back out and get it wet.

This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish, Permit, and Snook – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
