    Here is a little critter I built today while the rain is coming down here in Alabama.

    My thinking, okiekev, is multiple moduli of fibers breathing differently on the strip as well as on the pause best suggest edible lifeforms to bonefish/permit. So hen hackle rabbit strips, marabou, partridge hackle, various synthetic hairs and, of course silicone strands combined make the most successful flies. Then there is the way the fly swims, does it duplicate the behavior of a crustacean?

    My two fundamental bonefish flies (always a work in progress) are a Sideways Swimming Crab and Shrimp Cocktail

    Oldskewl, those look great. Your waters were the first place I was ever introduced to tying on black hooks. Like I mentioned with S&S, got me thinking about painting some hooks tan. Nice work

    I love just coming up with ideas as I go. Not real sure what I have going on here but it has movement and swims really well. Speaking of which, am I the only one who fills the bath tub and ties up a couple of feet of flouro to see how they swim?

    Shaped an EP brush here on a long shanked hook and I like the profile on this one. Could probably get away as a crab imitation or swim it like a shrimp.

    I love the flies in this thread and not a Gottcha among them!

    Here is a shrimp fly I tied today for Florida.

    Getting ready for KW next week...but these three are my venue flies: white Clouser Andros Fresh Creek south the Bights; the Electric Dread by the late Cordell Biscayne Bay; Merkin variation Key West for all three and just for the memories of Cordell and his square back canoe and the Dread in Key West

    Has Cordell past away? When and how? I never fished with him but communicated with him years ago and am a fan of his exploits.
