Bugeyed Bait




This fly was developed for Curtis White at the Saltwater Angler in Key West. He had stocked a similar fly for years but couldn’t get it anymore. After some work this is what we came up with. Generally this fly is used offshore for pelagics but occasionally on the flats for tarpon or barracuda. Like the rest of S.S.Flies baitfish imitations it has been getting some use in the northeast on stripers and bluefish. It is a tough fly with lots of flash and a big head that pushes a wake. It’s tied on the super heavy duty Owner Aki hook which also increase the sink rate a bit.

This can be custom ordered in any color scheme to match local baitfish or put on our standard Gamakatsu SC15. Visit our custom tying page to learn more.
