Qs thin lizzy…one of my go-tos

the original recipe….published in Fly Fishing in SaltWaters…this pattern was developed after my friend Zino told me about the large bonefish in Hawaii that were feeding on lizardfish. He needed a fly that would imitate them. I went to work on the vice and after talking back and forth, I came up with this pattern called the “the thin lizzy”  named after one of my favorite bands, LOL. It was intended to freeze on the flat once cast and let drop in the hopes the bonefish would discover the fly.

here’s the thin lizzy in action, note the proper weighting system that allows this fly to do a head stand and remain motionless as long as theres’s not too much current …video by Zino Nakasuji.
