    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 fly box and asked our guide Fredlon what fly to use. To my surprise he pointed to a pattern which had been introduced to us by Derrick Muchamp on our first bonefish trip to Belize back in 1982, the Orange Puff. The fly was attached to the leader and cast blindly into the whitish cloud. After allowing time for the fly to sink, several jerky strips got a crisp strike. This and several more medium size bonefish fell for the fly in quick succession. When I asked Fredlon what the bonefish thought the Puff fly looked like, he replied with a big grin, "Pink jelly beans, man! Who can refuse them?"

    Pink Puff
    This is a variation of the fly attributed to Capt. Neil Bohannon which was first tied in the 1970's as the Mini Puff. The original was light pink in color. Our modification using slightly different colors has proven to be even more productive under many situations. Medium weighted with stainless steel bead-chain.
