Little Petey is a little fly with a big punch.
A very effective bonefish fly that works just about everywhere.
It’s easy to tie and light as a feather and casts with ease.
It got the name “Lil’ Petey” fishing South Andros in the Bahamas.
Someone thought is was a miniature Peterson’s Spawning Shrimp and shouted, “throw me another lil’ Petey” It’s been Lil’ Petey ever since.
