Kwan, Chartreuse
As tied by: Pat Dorsy
The Kwan Fly was invented for the backwaters and flats of South Florida to imitate the mottled blennies and gobies that sport fish prey on. The striped Kwan quickly proved itself in many other waters. The fly was initially tied for bonefish. It quickly proved it's worth on virtually every species of fish in South Florida and on many other flats in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

Kwan, Tan
As tied by: Pat Dorsy
This is a very effective redfish fly in various conditions. Because of the basic shape of it's body, it makes a good crab/shrimp/gobie/blennie imitation in shallower water. Unlike most crab imitation flies this fly is also productive when stripped as a streamer for blind casting, or fishing to cruising reds.

Bonefish Puff

On a recent trip to Andros South Bonefish Camp, we drifted up within casting range of a whitish streak of clouded water. It was being caused by bonefish rooting for food buried in the bottom of the shallow flat. Sometimes bonefish hydraulically excavate food organisms from soft silt by squirting jets of water from their mouths. This results in a cloud of debris which drifts with the current, sometimes for many yards. The cloud is called a "Mud". As we slowly approached the mudding fish, I offered a fly box and asked our guide Fredlon what fly to use.

To my surprise he pointed to a pattern which had been introduced to us by Derrick Muchamp on our first bonefish trip to Belize back in 1982, the Orange Puff. The fly was attached to the leader and cast blindly into the whitish cloud. After allowing time for the fly to sink, several jerky strips got a crisp strike. This and several more medium size bonefish fell for the fly in quick succession. When I asked Fredlon what the bonefish thought the Puff fly looked like, he replied with a big grin, "Pink jelly beans, man! Who can refuse them?"

Pink Puff
This is a variation of the fly attributed to Capt. Neil Bohannon which was first tied in the 1970's as the Mini Puff. The original was light pink in color. Our modification using slightly different colors has proven to be even more productive under many situations. Medium weighted with stainless steel bead-chain.

Reefer Mantis
Mantis Shrimp are plentiful along some flats and coral reefs. In actuality, they are neither shrimp nor mantids, but receive their name purely from the physical resemblance to both the terrestrial praying mantis and the shrimp. They may reach 12 inches in length or more, but the ones that bonefish and permit normally feed on are a fourth that large. Mantis shrimp appear in a variety of colors, from

shades of browns to bright neon colors. Although they are common animals and among the most important predators in many shallow, tropical and sub-tropical marine habitats they are poorly understood as many species spend most of their life tucked away in burrows and holes from which they ambush their prey. Mudding bonefish undoubtedly may excavate these holes by blowing jets of water down them. Mantis Shrimp have the ability to inflict painful gashes if not handled properly. They sport powerful claws that they use to attack and kill prey by spearing, stunning or dismemberment.
