Design Inspiration & Detail

This fly was designed and tied by Joe Murray of Willoughby, OH. Over the last ten years, Joe spent a good portion of his Summer months fishing Fort Meyers, Marco Island, Ding Darling, and Middle Torch Key. These were testing grounds for some of his original and creative fly designs. To learn more about Joe and his line of fly patterns, see our post on Flies by Joe Murray.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Redfish – many other species will also take the fly.
