Design Inspiration & Detail
Another great fly for fishing the backwaters of South Florida. The natural and orange colored EP fibers and gold crystal flash legs make this perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. Be creative and change up colors. Add silicone legs maybe. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.
This particular fly was designed to attract Snook and Redfish – jacks many other species will also take the fly. Toss this up within two feet of the mangrove line and you’ll see some action.
