TNT Backcountry Bug

Florida fly tier Taylor Topliffe brings us this excellent "Backcountry Bug" - a great fly for snook, redfish, baby tarpon, and more. This very "buggy" pattern works well in a wide variety of situations. Lightly weighted with bead chain eyes, this slow-sinking fly is solid sender for sight casting to laid-up fish, picking pockets in the mangroves, or as a general searching pattern. Soft marabou tail has lots of action in the water, and a monofilament weedguard keeps you fishing effectively in brushy areas. All colors feature a classic "Red Head" accent. Taylor's "TNT" fly has produced some truly explosive action in the backcountry including the Cobia seen below!
