Design Inspiration & Detail
Into experimentation mode on this one – goal was to make it a rendition of a small baitfish. Funny how it crosses the lines of a baitfish, shrimp, and worm. The fly doesn’t foul, making it very easy to fish. So far the fly has produced well in the backwaters of South Florida. Use white, greys, pinks, peach, and various other pale colors – be creative. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.
This particular fly was designed to attract Snook and Redfish – jacks, Barracuda, and many other species will also take the fly.
Awesome site JD. Way cool pics of the flies!
