Sad Flea Video Tutorial


Everything you need to tie the the best bonefish and permit fly ever.
When it comes to flies for bonefish and permit, our Biscayne Bay guide Capt. Dave Saddler likes simple and effective. With those guidelines in mind, he came up with the Sad Flea and has great success with the fly due to how naturally it lands. The Sad Flea hits the water softly and sits on the bottom with the tail end looking up at the fish, much like a crab or shrimp in a defensive position. The weed guard will then keep the fly snag-free as it (unsuccessfully) attempts to flee. The Sad Flea helped angler Brower Moffit achieve victory at the 2009 Superfly S.L.A.M.

Disclaimer: Hackle can vary from Red Grizzly/Cree/Chinchilla depending on quality of cape we choose to accept at the shop.

The Sad Flea Materials Kit sets you up to tie the most effective color variation of this fly, ginger/tan.
