Just recently finished the bonefish box for Belize. Only been tying a couple of months and this is my first saltwater attempt, but hopefully will get them bones!

I see a pattern in there that I would tumble as a crawdad.

Nice flies.

If anything, your guide may take a fly and remove some material. That happened to one of my friends who fished Andros. He tied some beautiful Gotchas and Charlies that matched the samples from a fly shop.

Remember that it is easier to make a fly sparser on the water than it is to dress it up. I am not saying that your flies are overdressed. I'll let your guide make that call.

Enjoy your trip.

Dennis

Thanks Dennis, a little haircut out on the water is certainly easier than going the other way! I think a few of the collars/'tails' might be a bit on the long side for the hook shank length, but again, easy to rectify.

I'll always listen to a guide's advice, after all if i knew best i wouldn't be paying him

Alex.

Did these little wolley buggers today. These are all done with a #10 hook. I fish smallies on the Shenandoah River with a 4wt rod. Makes a 10 inch smallie seem like a lunker. Actually, I'm new to your site and just trying to figure out how to post pictures...

Those are some great looking flies cuffer! The proportions are excellent. Looks like you have the photo thing figured out. Welcome to the forum.

I like the white add-ins and butt on those, never really thought of doing two toned ones.

First time i tried this style, and not too difficult to tie
Head could be tighter with no gaps in the buck tail, but i'll swim this one.
