Bonefish Bitters bonefish and permit fly
This is a popular bonefish and permit pattern created by Craig Matthews.
He named it after Winston Cabral (“Pops”). Pops is from a family of fisherman
and began commercial fishing at the age of 14. He has been a guide in the Turneffe Atoll since 1987.
This fly is a very useful one and productive for both bonefish and permit.
It is a “can’t miss” fly and should be in your arsenal when traveling to the Caribbean.
