  1. Dude, sweet fly, and one I recommend every bonefisher have in their box – from #8 to #2. In fact, it is the inspiration for my own Usual, (which you’ve already posted a pic of). I just tied it sparser (to imitate the grass shrimp here), flipped it over (to hide the shine of the hook), and added a weed guard. Bingo: magic, baby. Still, the original works everywhere from Islamorada to Andros, Mexico to Belize, and Cayman to Cuba.
