Bob Veverka's Mantis Shrimp is an important modern bonefish fly, which has quickly become a standard pattern for a wide variety of locations. This subtle fly features soft synthetic "fur" and sili legs, which create a whole lot of action in the water, prodding spooky bonefish to pounce! Great for hard-fished areas, or places where fish shy away from overly bright or shiny patterns.

These Mantis Shrimp patterns are an excellent addition to any bonefish angler's box. Designed by master fly tier Bob Veverka (www.bobveverka.com), this pattern is a step up from more "old-fashioned" patterns like the Crazy Charlie, etc, and more useful in areas where bonefish are heavily fished or have seen many flies. On a side note, Bob Veverka is the author of "Innovative Saltwater Flies", which we highly recommend (it's out of print, but grab a copy for sure if you find one!)
