Design Inspiration & Detail
Here’s one of our renditions of a Ghost shrimp – another great fly for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. Anything that looks like a shrimp, crab or baitfish with natural colors and an splash of something bright is already the perfect fly for catching some local game fish. As always, the metallic/ crystal flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.
This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish, Permit, Snook, and Redfish – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
