Chico's Yellow & Orange Bendback

Although this fly is ostensibly a redfish pattern, it is a great choice for all kinds of species where you will be fishing in grass, or around mangroves and other cover. Like most of Chico Fernandez's patterns, it's a straight forward tie, well thought out and very effective.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
