Design Inspiration & Detail

Capt Jesse originally designed this fly for Bluegill. After experimenting a bit in saltwater, he realized Redfish were all over it. Needless to say the saltwater hook was added to the design shortly after. From its profile, it looks like a solid Bone fly. Most variations of the Simple Micro Shrimp sell at $11.00 for three. For further info on Jesse and a look at more of his fly patterns, see Flies by Backwater Fly Fishing.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Redfish and Snook – Jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
