Design Inspiration & Detail
I wanted to create a shrimp fly with neutral tones and contrast them with dark colored antennae. Figured this would work very well in the warm waters of South Florida and the Caribbean – white patterns always produce fish here. Added the red nose for attention. Shrimp patterns allow for so much creativity.
This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
