Deer Hair Puff Bonefish fly
This is another of the thousands of unnamed bonefish flies out there which consistently proves to be a very productive pattern in the Bahamas and elsewhere. We call it the deer hair puff because it is essentially a pink puff (pink wiggler) with a deer hair wing.
This might be one of our creations but we are not claiming it as our own (for now).
It is a lightweight, easy to cast shrimp pattern for Bahama bonefish. Pink inside, tan outside, just enough movement and color variation to get their interest. This is a very easy fly to tie despite its complex appearance.
