Bonefish Bristle Worm

Bristle Worm Tan/Gold Eye

Bristle Worm Tan / Gold Eye

The Bristle Worm is a key pattern for locations where bones hunt larger prey, like the Florida Keys, Grand Bahama, and more. This fly can serve as an excellent imitation of various worms and even mantis shrimp, and has been responsible for plenty of big bonefish over the years. Soft fur tail and buggy hackle create movement to attract the attention of prowling bonefish. Two variations available to match conditions: a "stealth" version tied with a black nickel hook and dark lead eyes, and a brighter version, tied with a silver hook and gold eyes. Gold Eye version shown above; Lead Eye pictured below (and here's an alternate top view of the Gold Eye). $4.99/ea
