Today I was tying some flies and wanted to share with you what fly pattern that’s been working really well for me. It’s a bonefish toad fly, but instead of using brown and tan I’ve been using chartreuse mixed with light tan.
What you will need:
Hook: Gamakatsu BS10 #4
Thread: Light Tan or Chartreuse whatever you prefer.
Eyes: Small or extra small lead eyes depending on the water depth.
Tail: Chartreuse Craft Fur and charteuse crystal flash.
Body: Polypropylene Yarn Tan.
Weedgard: Mason 16# hard mono.
First rap the shank and tie on your lead eyes by figure eighting them in place.
Once your done figure eighting the eyes make sure you rap your thread back in order to tie in the craft fur tail along with your crystal flash.
After tying in the craft fur bar the tail with a brown sharpie then tie in the crystal flash.
Now your ready to figure eight the yarn in. You should only need four to five pieces. Dont forget to turn the hook upright before you tie the body in place.
Cut off the excess yarn and make it into a crab shape then tie your weedgard in. Use whatever head cement you like to finish the fly.
Try this fly next time you go bonefishing, you wont be disapointed.
The Fishing in Biscayne Bay remains strong especially with the permit fishing. The bonefishing has been consistant with plenty of smaller fish in the bay and ocean side flats. Once the water tempature cools off the big boys should start to show.
