/ Dumbell / marabou / olive /
tied by Pujic
Fly Type: General Saltwater,
Target Species: Bonefish, Permit,
Recommended Region: Caribbean,
Hook: Mustad C705D Size 2
Thread: Tan UNI 6/0
Tail: A very short plume of burnt orange marabou.
Eyes: Burnt mono eyes.
Body: Tan and olive wool, tied so that the tan is on the sides and bottom, and the olive is on the top, near the eye of the hook.
Legs: 3 starnds of orange medium centipede legs tied to create 6 legs, 3 per side.
Weight: Medium dumbell eyes tied on the top of the hook shank, just before the eye of the hook, causing the fly to ride inverted.
Tying Instructions: This is a very general cross between a Merkin Crab and a Bonefish Critter. Both of those flies are individually very well known, however by adding legs and widening out the body a bit, a hybird can be created - hopefully having the same success as the other 2 patterns.
Presentation Tips: N/A
