Design Inspiration & Detail
This fly was designed in 1991 by Pete Colding of Southern Boys Flies. Pete spent a good portion of his youth in Southern Florida and holds a few secrets to effectively landing fish. He now ties from North Carolina and ships a good amount of product back to Florida. To learn more about Pete and his extensive inventory, see our post on Southern Boys Flies.
This particular fly was designed to attract Snook – many other species will also take the fly.
