Snapping Shrimp Variation: HD Bonefish Fly Tying Part 8

“This is a great simple fly that lands soft and works on a variety of different species.” – Capt. Jesse Males

Part 8 of my Hd Bonefish Fly Tying Series is unfortunately going to be the last one in the Bonefish lineup. This isn’t because there is a shortage of patterns, but because there are some tarpon patterns that I would like to cover with you before Tarpon Season  2017 kicks in.

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.
