Flats flies are for most fish that live on warm saltwater flats. These species might include bonefish, permit, redfish, and also fish that are on the flats seasonally such as bluefish, sea trout, jacks, lady fish, cobia, etc. These flies imitate shrimp and crabs, and other closely related organisms. Baitfish flies can be found in other directories.

Bonefish Fly, Silicone Leg WigglersAt a place called Buttonwood Caye, out of Placencia, Belize there is a huge pile of Conk shells piled there over the years by commercial fishermen.

The Bonefish Wiggler Series is a winner in these medium depth flats. Fish your wiggler with slow strips and a little...

Bonefish Bitters, AmberThis small crab fly was invented at Turneffe Flats Lodge on the Turneffe Atoll, Belize. The original fly had a hot glue head which was prone to melt and disfigure if left exposed in a fly box in the hot tropical sun. These flies are made by a much more expensive method which uses epoxy for the head. This make a much more durable and even more effective fly.Bonefish Bitters, Hermit CrabHermit crabs are a favorite food for both Bonefish and Permit. Most species have long,...

Bonefish Buttah The Bonefish Buttah was originally developed specifically for the expansive flats system of South Andros Island in the Bahamas, where unlike some other popular bonefishing destinations around the world, the fish prefer the odd combination of large, yet light, flies. Therefore, designing a fly that produced a large, active profile in the water, while still possessing the ability to present softly in skinny water, became the ultimate goal at the vise.In attempts to produce a...

The Bonejovi was born after a day of wading in the Joulter Cays. A group of us had been camping for several days, walking and kayaking to huge flats. We all spread out and enjoyed success with very different flies. When we got together over a fire in the evening, we discovered that we had all been experimenting with different flies, yet arrived at some pretty different patterns. So I spent a while examining everyone?s successful flies to see what they all had in common. The prevailing theme...

Most bonefish are encountered in water from 1 to 3 feet deep. A slightly weighted fly that rides hook upward is required to fish this water properly with a floating fly line. Try to match the sink rate of your fly to the depth of the water you are fishing.Bob Nauheim is credited with developing a fly called the "Crazy Charlie." It is a design which sinks quickly to the bottom and then rides hook-point-up to remain comparatively snag free when retrieved. It was colored to imitate a small fish...

Minnows have a few key features. Most species have very prominent eyes. Small baitfish are often very active, darting and flashing here and there in search of food. Action and flash are features that can awaken the predatory instincts that make many species of game fish bite. On these fly patterns, the painted lead eyes are very realistic. The weight provided by these eyes give this type of fly a distinct darting minnow action when retrieved. The long, sparse buck tail and flashabou wing gives...

Written by: Lex HochnerAs is the case on a patented basis with all ?stacked? synthetic fiber crab fly patterns, the Defiant Crab is a variation upon a theme of Del Brown?s Merkin Crab. The Defiant Crab was primarily designed as a permit pattern, but it has also been highly successful in taking bonefish and redfish. Aside from the realistic marriage of materials, the aspect of this fly which sets it apart from other crab patterns is the unique body trimming method. When at rest between strips,...

Many species of fish feed on shrimp. The trick is to approximate the color of the bottom with the general color of your fly. Most bottom dwelling animals that live on flats or coral reefs are able to change color to match their surroundings. This fly is best over darker bottoms. The tan colored fly is proven for use over light colored bottoms. Bonefish love both colors of the EP Spawning Shrimp. Both colors are extremely productive in the Bahamas and Belize.

Will fished with the famous Westby brothers and Derrick Muschamp.At certain times there are large populations of small olive crabs on the Belizian flats, and permit seem to prefer them to most other foods.

My Flip Flop is sort of my lighter, less burly version of a Ragin? Craven, tied decidedly more shrimpy. The spun craft body and bead chain eyes land softly yet still present that big fly silhouette that I like. I leave the legs and antennae long to dance around as well as slow the descent of the fly. These long legs never stop moving even when the fly is just sitting on the bottom and the fish seem to come and find it on their own often enough to make me seem real smart about things like this....

The GotchaThe story goes that when anglers Ted McVay and his son Jim were staying at the Andros Island Bonefish Club in the Bahamas. Jim snipped some yellow carpet fibers from the floor of a taxi and used them to tie a new fly. Every time a fish hit the fly, guide Rupert Leadon would say, "Gotcha." The Gotcha fly is now tied with a wing of tan craft fur and the ones we sell have a mono weed guard, which helps keep your fly snag-free in some kinds of bottom structure. Or, you can simply remove...

Mark's Spawning Shrimp This fly started as a good deed from another angler who tied me a few flies while we were staying in San Pedro and fishing around Ambergris Key in Belize about 2000. I didn't have all the ingredients that my benefactor had used, but the substitutes worked even better than the originals. Mark's Spawning Shrimp is mighty tasty to bonefish and a host of other flats fish and to fish that live in the mangroves, such as snook, snappers, jacks and even an occasional permit....

On a trip to Andros South Bonefish Camp, we drifted up within casting range of a whitish streak of clouded water. It was being caused by bonefish rooting for food buried in the bottom of the shallow flat. Sometimes bonefish hydraulically excavate food organisms from soft silt by squirting jets of water from their mouths. This results in a cloud of debris which drifts with the current, sometimes for many yards. The cloud is called a "Mud." As we slowly approached the mudding fish, I offered a...

Redfish Ration Flies, Weedless If you are fishing around mangroves or oyster bars it is good to have a weed guard on your fly to keep it from getting snagged. This keeps your fly from getting tangled in roots, branches or bottom structure. As soon as your fly get stuck, your guide has to pole the boat over to go get it thus spooking any fish in the area, or you have to break it off which also can spook fish.  A weed guard also helps to keep your hook point sharp by not allowing it to...

Mantis Shrimp are plentiful along some flats and coral reefs.

Mantis shrimp appear in a variety of colors, from shades of browns to bright neon colors. Although they are common animals and among the most...
