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