Design Inspiration & Detail
The Puff is a frequent winner when fishing Andros island in the Bahamas. Puffs are very effective anywhere you find warmer skinny water. This makes it a perfect candidate for fishing South Florida too. The natural colors and splash of pale pink and orange 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. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.
This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
