  1. This fly is supposed to mimic a shrimp, however its a bit abstract. Its more about forcing a strike based on the movement and instinct rather than just visual cues. However this fly is one of the best for bonefish and does work very well. The calf tail is the most common fur used for these, but you could use many other natural materials including buck tail, or arctic fox tail. There are also many synthetic materials that work great with this fly as well. I have even known people to fish for panfish with this fly with a smaller hook. Whether your saltwater or freshwater fishing, this fly is a great fly that you should keep in your fly box Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 - size 6 Thread: Danville's 210 waxed - brown Weight: Dumbell eyes - small, black Body Wrap: saltwater sized flashabou, clear D-wrap Wing: calf tail - tan Flash: crystal flash - light orange
  2. The crack head charlie is a variant of the crazy charlie that I tie with "the kracken enhanced" dubbing. The fly sinks slowly to the bottom due to the bead chain eyes and sits with the hook point upright. The Kracken dubbing moves nicely in the water due to the micro rubber legs. Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 bonefish hook size 6 Thread: Danville 210 waxed in hot pink Body: Saltwater sized pearl flashabou, and D-rib Weight: Bead chain eyes Wing: Kracken Enhanced dubbing in hot pink Check out the video below, or view it on my website at the link below the imbedded video for more information and other videos.

  3. The Gotcha! bonefish fly is very popular and effective for fishing bonefish in the flats. It looks a lot like a shrimp swimming in the water when fished properly. Its fairly easy to tie and uses minimal materials. Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 - size 6 Tail: Mylar rope with the inner rope removed Body: Pearl braid Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed - hot orange Wing: Craft Fur - tan Flash: Krystal flash - gold weight: Bead chain eyes Check out the video below, or for more information check out my website in the link below the video. http://www.mcflyangler.com/saltwater/crabs-and-shrimp/gatcha-bonefish-fly
