The Spam and Eggs a is bonefish fly pattern developed by Coach Duff for large bonefish in Hawaii. If you don’t know, Spam & Eggs is a very popular dish in Hawaii. You can even get it at McDonalds! The Spam and Eggs is meant to imitate a mantis shrimp, which is one of the largest food sources for big Hawaiian bonefish. Its signature look is the spider-like legs that splay out to each side. These legs move and undulate in the current, which entices the fish to eat. The Spam and Eggs can also be tied in olive colors, but the Tan color is the most popular and effective. If you’re looking for an awesome fly for bonefish, the Spam and Eggs is a must-have in any Hawaiian bonefish fly box!
Have fun tying this one! Remember to watch the very end of the video to see how it looks in the water!
