How to tie the EP Mantis Shrimp

The EP Mantis Shrimp

The EP Mantis Shrimp is a must have fly on the flats. Bonefish, Baby Tarpon, Permit, and Snook will all want a piece of this tasty morsel. While this fly has quite a few ingredients, it is worth the time. I recommend tying this fly in a variety of different sizes and weights with an emphasis on the weight. Tie some with the bead, some with lead, and some with brass. The weight of the fly will directly impact the scenario you are fishing and presentation you are trying to mimic.
