Mantis Shrimp

Veverka Mantis Shrimp Fly

Bob Veverka's Mantis Shrimp is an important modern bonefish fly, which has quickly become a top producing 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. Excellent pattern for Bahamas, Cuba, South America - almost any location really.

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!)
