So… time to sit back down at the vice and start turning out some flies. Unlike my flies for El Pescador, this time I’ll be moving right on past those #8’s and #6’s… kind of past the #4’s and focusing on big flies… 2’s and larger with, of course, the 4’s and 6’s… just in case. Looks like not many of these patterns will need weed guards, which is nice as well.
It is nice to tie with a purpose… with a destination in mind… with a real reason to turn the bobbin.
Andros South, as you might expect, has some thoughts on flies you might want to have along. The Deneki Blog is content rich.
Compared to most in the bonefishing world, the flies that we like to fish on South Andros tend to be an unusual combination of big and light. For anglers wanting to load up a fly box before their trip, that can make it a little hard to buy commercially available flies – most widely available bonefish flies are either light enough but too small (probably designed for places like Belize and Christmas Island), or big enough but too heavy (probably designed for the Florida Keys).
Yes… I think I’m going to enjoy this…
