Fly Patterns

Sandy Scampi: Olive

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 (#4)
  • UTC 210, tan
  • Brass Eyes, medium, gold
  • Krystal Flash, olive/ pearl
  • Badger, small (underfur used for dubbing as well)

Design Inspiration & Detail

Having a sandy colored shrimp fly in the box is always a smart idea. Adding a hint of another color, in crystal flash, makes the pattern even better. Using olive, copper, orange, pink, red, purple, blue, black, and numerous others simply give the shrimp amazing life. Have fun experimenting!

Target Species

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