Beautiful work as always Patrick. I realize these flies aren't intended for tropical species, but have you ever casted these for bonefish or permit? I haven't had the privilege of fishing for either but something tells me this would double as an awesome bonefish fly in the more tropical regions.

@Krawec Thank You☺️🙏 No, I only fish for searun brown trout with these flies. Maybe someone else here on Flyflasher has tested similar flies for bonefish or permit. @trublubug has a wide experience when it comes to application of flies - he may have an idea.

Two cents worth. LOL Hi Patrik and @Krawec Have not tried this style on bones or permit although I agree with Cory they should make awesome imitations for those species though perhaps not in this color. When I first viewed your post Patrik, the shape and color made me instantly think of a soft shelled crayfish. Right after molting, these guys look just like your fly except for the lack of claws. The color here is about perfect. I’ve read, but can’t say I know, that warm freshwater species actually prefer crayfish that have lost claws. I tie an imitation with only one claw and have tried another pattern without any claws comparing them to clawed imitations. My results were inconclusive. Here is what I do know though. After viewing a number of your shrimp imitations here Patrik, I had to try tying one and had to test it in freshwater. It turned out to be a successful carp fly. Up until this latest post I had not given thought to tying any in these colors to imitate a soft shell crayfish. I guess you have given me yet another “got to try that” pattern Patrik.

Forgot to say that my “copies” of your shrimp were modified slightly to give a less slender profile. My crayfish tend to be wider across the carapace than shrimp.
