Bonefish Squimp – Fly Tying Video Instructions

Video tutorial courtesy of our friends at InTheRiffle

Learn how to tie the deadly little Bonefish Squimp fly. The Squimp very closely imitates a small shrimp, which is the main food for any bonefish. The Squimp can be tied in many color variations, but the traditional is tan & is the most popular and effective. The Squimp can be tied with heavy or light eyes, depending on the depth of the flat and the spookiness of the fish. The Squimp fly is an absolute must have for bonefish & any flat fisherman!

Now just sit back, and watch James from InTheRiffle tie the Squimp! When you’re done, it’s game on! Let’s see what you can tie, then what you can catch! Remember to watch the very end of the video to see how it looks in the water.
