Sharks on a fly

During a lull in the bonefish action during my last Bahamas trip, three or four small sharks were working the flat and I thought hooking one of these guys might be interesting while awaiting the return of bones. They were obviously looking for something to eat but showed no interest in my bonefish fly nor a crab pattern and only gave the barracuda needlefish fly I showed them a brief look. I donít know my sharks but am told the most likely ones to find on these flats are juvenile lemon or black tip sharks if I remember correctly. Iíve tied up a few Leftyís Shark Flys in red and yellow and have them rigged with wire for my trip down next week. Can anyone offer some advice on how to hook up with sharks on the flats? Or is this whole idea something that would best be abandoned (as many of my ideas turn out to be)?
