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 (#8)
  • UTC Monofilament, clear (0.006)

Design Inspiration & Detail

Another great fly for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. The pearlescent body and multi colors of metallic ribbon make this fly perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. As always, the metallic flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

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