This Great Bonefish Fly works like a charm in every bonefish situation I have been in. I have tied this fly big and small, with more or less weight, and I have experimented with a few colors. This Bonefish Pattern is very easy to tie, uses less materials than many other bonefish flies and the fish will bite it.

Bonefish are strong fish. Bonefish flies should have strong hooks. I used a Gamakatsu SL12S size 2 for this fly.
For this pattern I used a small set of weighted eyes. I have also found that bead chain eyes work quite well for shallow or spooky fish.
The body of this Great Bonefish Fly is tied with Marabou. I like to use lighter colors more often than not.
I use permanent markers to make this fly look like a little shrimp. A little contrast goes a long way in the world of a bonefish.
