Fly Patterns

Spawning Shrimp: Orange Beard


Recreate fly patterns at home! Materials used in making this fly have been included below. Always keep in mind your local fly-fishing store will most likely have the materials referenced, and typically for less. Materials can also be found at Amazon or any other major on-line resource.

Fly-Tying Materials

  • Mustad 34007SS (#4)
  • UTC 210, tan
  • Bead Chain Eyes, large, black
  • Krystal Flash, gold
  • Krystal Flash, black/ red
  • EP Fibers, orange
  • EP Fibers, beige

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.

Target Species

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.
