Seychelles Shrimp bonefish fly

Creator: unknown

This is a beautiful fly & very simple to tie. It is a shrimp imitation for the crystal clear waters of the Seychelles. It is very basic requiring only marabou & hackle feathers but has amazing movement and life in the water. We use a smaller version of this in the Bahamas sometimes as well. Try it next time your are out, you’ll be surprised at how awesome it looks in the water.
