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.

Target Species

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