Tying The Mantis Shrimp Fly For Redfish

Captain Gibson of Fly Fish Rockport is showing you how he ties the Mantis Shrimp fly pattern. This is one of the best redfish fly patterns, and works equally well on bonefish and permit.

This is a fairly easy pattern to tie, and takes just a couple of minutes typically. Always a good addition to any flybox if fly fishing in Texas on the flats.
