Bonefish Joe

The locations are the Keys, the Bahamas and Ascencion Bay...Hook- 2 ,4 or 6.... Thread- Brown Monocord.... Tail- Pink,tan Marabou with collar of pink Vernille...then splayed grizzly hackles tied in front of the collar... Head/Eyes- Tan/olive chenille over medium lead barbell eyes( I used ready made eyes of white and black as was called for in the recipe).... Wing Sun deer hair ..tan or brown tied in behind the eyes, leaving the but ends to flare and trim flat along the shnk so fly rides flat... this also calls for a weed guard which I did not include. More details in Brown's book... designed by Les Fulcher.
