“The Rattle Buster Baitfish is a rattling streamer fly that pushes a ton of water and makes sure the fish knows exactly where the fly is at all times…OH…AND FISH DIG IT!” – Jesse Males

Rattle flies have had their place in them fly tying and fly fishing world for some time now. When ever the water is dark or even if there is just a lot of current and noise in the water, a rattle and a hefty fly is often enough to get big fish to bite!


If you have yet to tie a fly using blank shanks or rattles then this fly may be a bit of a challenge for you to whip up at first. However, these are great tools that we can use as anglers to help get the upper hand during a day spent on the water.

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.
