Purple and Chartreuse Saltwater Fly DOUBLE TROUBLE -- This is a great Saltwater Fly we use in Sunny South Florida for Snook, Jacks and Baby Tarpon. We took it to the Naples area acouple years ago, on our annual trip and except for the dynamite Mantilla, was our best fly. The color is a beautiful combination of Purple and Chartreuse. Size 1, 1/0

Price: $3.50

      


Saltwater Mantilla, masked flySaltwater Mantilla -- We went to the Everglades area of Florida for 2 weeks back in May and released more big Snook than ever, both on the Full moon and new moon. This fly was deadly around the Mangroves and canals. We designed this fly to imitate a newborn or stillborn minnow. Notice the eyes are masked until they get wet.  Wet fly below.
Size 1/0

Price $3.75 Saltwater Mantilla, masked fly wet

 

Fly made from Sea Dragon DubbingSD Salty Wacker -- This fly has a tail of 840 legs and the body is our new Sea Dragon Dubbing. Not having a chance to go salt water fishing since the new dubbing came out we sent some to some friends in Florida to test for us. The report was they worked well! The 840 legs as well as the wigglys in the dubbing give the fly great action. We are offering 3 colors without eyes chartreuse and yellow, purple, red and white, and 1 color with eyes, chartreuse. Of course the eyes help you get a little deeper if you need too. But if you are throwing at the base of mangroves you would not want that extra weight.
Sizes 1/0, 2/0 Fly made from Sea Dragon Dubbing with eyes
Price $2.95

Let it sink for a few seconds, then you can't strip them fast enough! Excellent during the full moon and any bright night situation, although we've also done really well during the first 2 or 3 hours of daylight on rolling tarpon in back bays and canals.

Small Fry, Saltwater Fly Fishing Flies "SMALL FRY" -  This fly is vastly-improved version of the scaled sardine pattern from our book "Back Country Fly Fishing."

It is especially effective at night under the lights.  Size 2

Yella Fella , Velcro Saltwater FlyYELLA FELLA - Along with the Sea Devil, old “Yella” is one of the deadliest saltwater flies for nailing big snook and baby tarpon in the backcountry.

Price: $2.75 each


Green & Mean,  Saltwater Fly head made of velcroGREEN & MEAN - Similar to Yella Fella, except a chartreuse and white color scheme. Great for murky water conditions and under the docks at night. The non-fouling tail is certainly a pleasure to fish. Size 1

glow in the dark bonefish flyGlowing Bone - Another Glow-In-the-Dark fly that we have had great reports on from our friends that tested it for us. They got it glowing and fished it during the day like any other bonefish fly and the bonefish were interested in it and grabbed it. Size 4

Price $3.45


bonefish fly gold hookGoldilocks - Becoming one of our very best Bonefish flies, I think for 3 reasons: precise placement of the gold bead chain eyes, the general gold coloration of the fly and most importantly, putting GX Wigglys in the wing - great action!! Size 8

The Bonefish Killer, great bonefish  Fly"THE BONEFISH KILLER"—Developed by super fly tyer Dick Nelson, the "Killer" is a favorite on the flats.

Bone-A-Boo, our favorite Bonefish Fly"BONE-A-BOO" -  Crazy Charlies and Gotchas have been top dogs when it comes to bonefish flies; however, I've encountered numerous situations, over the past few years, where standard imitations simply didn't work.  My best solution to this problem is an All-Maribou fly which I've named the Bone-A-Boo. Give it a try for Fussy Bones. Size 4 & 6, Color: Tan, Pink
