The Beady Eye Baitfish fly is a Clouser style fly tied with bead chain eyes instead of lead eyes which makes for a more castable fly with a more moderate sink rate. For medium depth shallow water situations where lead eyes are too much, we often turn to flies like this tied with bead chain instead of lead. Tied with a nice "laser light" gill highlight, this is a great fly for bonefish, baby tarpon, seatrout and redfish, and small tunas like false albacore and bonito. This type of pattern can be quite useful for swinging cross current in estuary fishing for striped bass and other species. A great all-purpose fly - we always keep a few of these in the box alongside our heavier clouser minnows.
