Product Description

The Mantis Shrimp fly pattern is our best selling bonefish fly. Why? Because it is sooooo effective! This fly catches bonefish anywhere it is fished. (Small barracuda are also enamored with this fly, so take plenty!)

New production of this fly is being tied as follows:
  • #8 as stated above is tied on #8 Tiemco 811S (This hook requires a lighter tippet)
  • #6 as stated above is tied on #8 SL-11 3H 
  • #4 as stated above is tied on #6 SL-11 3H [NOTE: because of a shortage of SL-11s in this size, we are temporarily tying our size 4s on a Gama SL-12S hook.  This hook is the same size, but has a slightly larger hook gap]
  • #2 as stated above is tied on #4 SL-11 3H
The Gamakatsu SL-11 3H is one of the strongest and sharpest hooks available, and worth every penny when you hook-up with a fish of a lifetime!

Additionally, new production also includes a weed guard, which can easily be trimmed off if it is not necessary.

Chunky Sea Trout

My first day out with the Mantis shrimp 2 wading the flats in east central Florida I scored on a chunky 25 inch spec. I can't wait to try the same fly in the keys for bones or permit. I've got the mantis in all sizes knowing it's a winner.

Used last week in the Tres Pescacos Slam Tournament on Ambergris Caye, Belize. Caught bones and permit on it and came in second in the pro division. Good flies. Sam Hart

Best Bonefish Fly Ever
Jim Perdiew | May 11th, 2010
The Tan Mantis Shrimp in any size was awesome on Bahamas Bones. They rejected various other flies, but raced competitively to take this one. Fly has great construction, good weight for casting, but still lands relatively quietly without unduly spooking wary bones.
