"Pops" Cabral

Bonefish Bitters
Craig Mathews invented this pattern and named "Pops Bonefish Bitters, after Winston "Pops" Cabral who is one of the favorite guides at Turneffe Flats Lodge in Belize.  Pops has been with Turneffe Flats since 1987. Prior to that, he guided at the southern end of Turneffe for a number of years. He began working
with his family as a commercial fisherman in the Turneffe Islands at age 14, and remembers spending holidays on a Caye at the south tip of Turneffe which disappeared during Hurricane Hattie in 1961. Pops says bonefishing is his favorite fishing. Guiding is special for Pops, and he takes his fishing seriously. An accomplished fly caster, Pops was born and raised in Belize City.

Bonefish Bitters, Amber
This small crab fly was invented at Turneffe Flats Lodge on the Turneffe Atoll, Belize. The original fly had a hot glue head which was prone to melt and disfigure if left exposed in a fly box in the hot tropical sun. These flies are made by a much more expensive method which uses epoxy for the head.  This make a much more durable and even more effective fly.

Bonefish Bitters, Hermit Crab
Hermit crabs are a favorite food for both Bonefish and Permit. Most species have long, spirally curved abdomens, which are soft, unlike the hard, calcified abdomens seen in related crustaceans. The vulnerable abdomen is protected from predators by a salvaged empty seashell carried by the hermit crab, into which its whole body can retract. Most frequently hermit crabs use the shells of sea snails.
