Welcome to the second HD Fly Tying Video in our bonefish fly tying series! To view the first tutorial simply CLICK HERE.

In this video we cover the steps needed to tie what I call the ‘No Name Shrab’ fly. It is a pattern that can resemble a crab or a shrimp. That is why I call it a ‘shrab’ fly.screen-shot-2016-12-27-at-12-54-39-pm

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 as well as our online fly shop, 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.
