Mantis Shrimp Variant

The grand-old-man in saltwater-flyfishing and -tying Bob Veverka created the famous pattern The Mantis Shrimp. The fly has proven its ability to imitate shrimps and to "fool" saltwater-fish in big numbers - and it is a must-have in every bonefishers fly-box. In this video we have teamed up once again with Mathias "Krølle" Ibsen who ties his version of the all-time-classic, an easy-to-tie fly Mathias has caught a big number of nice bonefish on.

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.
