This fly is tied to imitate the small dark colored blennies and killifish found in the backwaters of the Everglades. The one pictured is on a size 8 hook and about 1 1/2" long. It is tied with a combination of dark brown and black Slinky Fibers. I add a small bunch of glow-in-the-dark Flashabou for the throat. I tie it on a Gamakatsu SC15 2x strong in size 2 for small tarpon.
Snook, reds and small tarpon will key in on these fish when they move into the brackish backwaters of the Glades. Fish it on a long leader when sightfishing in skinny water.
