McQuades Banded Shrimp |
By Jason Akl
The McQuade’s Banded Shrimp is one of those special patterns that well informed angler’s carry and depend on to turn the tides on a rough day fishing the flats.
It is an understatement to say that bonefish love shrimp patterns that have lots of action. With this pattern the soft hackle tips used in the claws and the palmered grizzly hackle used for the underbody drive fish wild with their sultry movements in the water. This simple, effective bonefish pattern features grizzly hackle for that banded "shrimpy" look, while the light composition of this fly allows it to float and flutter along the bottom as it if were swimming on its own. Tie this fly in sizes 2-6.
