Today’s post goes out to all the fastidious fly tyers out there..
The un-pressured bonefish of South Andros aren’t overly picky when it comes to exact fly pattern. That said, we have noticed over the years a few common characteristics amongst the flies that seem to work best on our flats – large profiles (big, but light flies), hints of orange, and rubber legs to name a few.
That’s why we were pleasantly unsurprised when our pal, Larry Lewis, showed us this photo of a shrimp he managed to scrape up from the flats during his most recent trip to Andros South.
Wow. Turns out we’ve been matching the ‘hatch’ the whole time. Tie accordingly.
