: Bonefish Flies Question

07-05-2006, 12:44 PM
I have used Gotcha's and Crazy Charlies is there anything else I need or you suggest? The bottom is filled with eel grass, we wade it. Can anyone suggest a website or someplace that I can buy flies for a cheap price? My local fly shop is REALLY expensive, thanks.

You might also want some flies without eyes. Sierra Trading Post occasionally has bonefish flies at rock-bottom prices.

Weightless flies for grass and tailing fish are easy to tie and anything that looks half like a shrimp, swimming crab or minnow morsel will do it.

Just take a little cheesecloth net and scoop up a bunch of critters and spin stuff around a hook that resembles them.

It's mostly about presentation on the grass as you might already know. Soft landing, having it down enough so they come up on it in easy reach, and having it suggest food.

Thanks for the website and I will look into tying
