I’ve already tied a handful of Bob Veverka’s brilliant creation, but after staring at them a bit I thought they were missing something (besides, of course, the application of actual fly tying skills).
This go-round I went for short shank #1 hooks (Gamy SC15s), and added flash antennae. For the body I used UV tan dubbing instead of plain ol’ light tan, and packed the tail end (or front end, depending on whether you are a fly fisher or a hungry bonefish) a wee bit fuller.
Our FIBFest host says that South Andros Island bonefish will eat just about anything. If those torpedoes of the flats take this critter down, I’ll be eating nothing but words.
