I think we’re seeing bonefish flies all wrong.
We look at them from the beam most times, side view. Or directly from the bow, dead on the front of the fly. But that’s not the bonefish’s view. The properly presented bonefish fly is viewed by its intended prey from dead astern. Deep quarter at best.
Pick up a “good” bonefish fly and judge it from how it looks viewed from the back. That’s what the fish sees.
Just a thought…
Editor’s note: I like John’s point. That’s exactly what was on my mind when I came up with the Sugar Foot. Here’s a video on how to tie that fly. It works!
