Cognac Crab Bonefish Fly
Even though it’s called the cognac crab, it’s actually a shrimp fly for bonefish. This is a great pattern for bonefishing the flats in Oahu at Triangle or by the airport. If traveling to Moloka’i or Christmas Island, this pattern will prove to be productive there as well. We’ve caught bluefin trevally as well as big bonefish on this little fellow. Created by Mike Hennessy primarily for bonefishing in Oahu.
