Bonefish and Permit Assortment - The BEST Bonefish Flies for Ascension Bay, Belize, Cuba, Yucatan Peninsula, and the Bahamas




Flies for Bonefish

Bonefish are caught in the most abundant numbers, and likely what you will spend most of your time pursuing. We like to have a few flies that are heavy for schools of Bones on the ledges, a couple of mid weight flies, and a couple of unweighted patterns for tailing fish in the shallows. Average size can vary by location, but they run like crazy! They eat shrimp, small crabs, and other crustaceans. They travel in very shallow water and the juveniles (12-18") will run in schools, and the larger fish (3-7 pounds) will usually travel in pairs or groups of three. 7-8 weight rods, 2 X Tippet, and use the smallest flies in your box.

Flies for Permit a.k.a. Palometa in Espanol

Permit are a big deal! This is the most coveted game fish on earth... or so says anybody that has ever stalked the flats searching for them! Anglers make many trips without landing a Permit. Spooky, fast, wiley, and selective are words that describe them. Mystical, captivating, and addicting do too. They eat primarily crabs so you should have at least a dozen various crab patterns with you. Long delicate casts, longer strips, and quiet "tip toe" feet are required. The guides in Mexico like to say... Bonefish are fun, but Permit is our drug! When they are "tailing" (tail out of the water, head down feeding) is when you try to time your cast.

Flies from MANY Tyers February 28, 2019
Reviewer: Joe Rotter from Saltwater Angling Fanatic at Red's  
We put this group together based on OUR personal experiences and it includes patterns from a variety of tyers. Unlike many shops or outfits, we aren't locked into purchasing from just a single company. We've mixed the patterns based on the weight of the eyes (light for shallow water), heavy for deep water, color, and direct requests from guides in these destinations. We feel it is the most complete assortment for Bonefish and Permit available.
