Jane Taylor, and the Bonefish & Permit of the Yucatan Are All Hooked On The Bead Chain Spawning Shrimp
Wanted to pass on my positive review of your spawning shrimp bead-eye fly, code: W-SPSB. This fly is my go-to for bonefish and permit in the Yucatan. Here are a couple of pics proving its success. Using the same fly, not just the same pattern, but the SAME fly in a size 4, I landed a dozen bones in the 5 lb range and 2 small permit. The bones down here absolutely attack this fly.
I am also impressed with how well the fly held up, even after being abused by the occasional toothy snapper. This pattern should be a staple in everyone's fly box if they're heading to the Yucatan. Thank you for offering such a quality product at a killer price.
Copper King is a Spectacular Stonefly Nymph imitation for Drew Gross
Drew, Head Guide for Granby Bait 'N Tackle, is having a lot of success with a Copper King while fishing the Colorado River downstream of Granby.
Bump Williams got this 50 Pound Tarpon on a Chartreuse and White Clouser Minnow. Bump was recently fishing Andros Island in the Bahamas, stayed at the Andros Bay Cottage Fishing Lodge, and hired David and Dwayne for their guides.
Rich Zoeltsch, of New York, landed a number of nice King Salmon while fishing a Purple Egg Sucking Leech. This was one of many.
There are many theories as to why this fly is so effective. No one knows for sure, but they are effective for catching Coho, Trout, and Steelhead too! This fly is effective both in a dead drift or swing.
Kieran Mooney caught this 5 1/4 pound bass on a #6 Black & Silver Conehead Zuddler Minnow. The Zuddler is also an effective fly for Steelhead, Trout, Pike and many other species. Cast the fly upstream like a nymph, let it sink, then swing the fly through deep runs.
Fish Big Streamers For Big Fish!
Blair Edwards from Ventura, California caught this leviathon on a Sculpzilla - Tan.
