A fly that’s known to fool anything from tough bones to even tougher permit, Veverka's Mantis Shrimp Fly is an essential saltwater pattern whether you’re heading to Andros Island, the Bahamas, or even Cape Cod. Designed by Bob Veverka's, his inspiration for the Veverka's Mantis Shrimp Fly came whenever he was anticipating a trip to the Bahamas. Looking over his arsenal of flies, he noticed something was missing--a fly of his own creation that imitated the mantis shrimp that bonefish are known to eat. Sitting at the vise, Bob spun up his first Veverka's Mantis Shrimp with a focus on the movement of its eyes and appendages. Almost needless to say, Bob’s shrimp pattern excelled in the Bahamas and has been catching saltwater fish since.
Most effective in olive and tan and in sizes ranging from 2-6, the Veverka's Mantis Shrimp Fly is a shrimp pattern that benefits from a stripped retrieve to allow maximum movement. Cast in into a channel, deep into the mangroves, or just blindly on a flat, this is a fly that catches fish no matter what saltwater environment you find yourself in.
