HD FLY TYING VIDEO: Bonefish Flies, Part One

“Your requests have been heard! The next ten or so HD Fly Tying Videos will be focusing only on bonefish flies!” – Capt. Jesse Males

Since I am in the process of whipping up bonefish flies for a trip to Honduras, I thought I would take you all along for a ride by doing a HD Fly Tying Video for each fly that is going in my box.

That means the next 10 HD Fly Tying Videos, or possibly more, will be focusing only on the bonefish flies that I am stocking up on for my trip.

The first fly in this series is one I call the Backwater Mix’n Match Bonefish Fly. It is a mash up of ingredients from the Gotcha and Crazy Charlie with a few legs thrown on it. Looks to me like it should get the job done.

Watch the HD Fly Tying Video below to get the low down on this pattern.

As you can see by the video the fly only takes a few steps to complete. The material list for this fly is shown below.


  • #6 Daiichi 2546
  • Shrimp Pink Thread
  • Small Lead or Bead Chain Eyes
  • Pink, Flat Diamond Braid
  • Pink Calf Tail
  • Pink/Clear Rubber Legs
  • Pearl Krystal Flash
  • Loon Hard Head

I hope this video has blessed you in your fly tying endeavors. Be sure to Subscribe to our Youtube Channel to follow along as we continue this series of bonefish flies.

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
