Bonefish Flies with Brandon Fawcett for Little Corn Island, Nicaragua


What a great start to our tying season. Twenty three fly tyers came out tonight to take in Brandon Fawcett's presentation on bonefish fly fishing on Little Corn Island in Nicaragua. Brandon has been guiding on Little Corn Island for several years. His company, Fly Fishing Little Corn has been quite successful. Tonight Brandon gave us a great overview of fly fishing on Little Corn Island. It certainly sounds like an adventure to go there. The bonefish are found on the flats and in slightly deeper water. There are elusive permit and tarpon in the area at certain times of the year as well!

Great job Brandon! What an enjoyable way to kick off the fly tying season!

Next week we will be tying two very cool mouse patterns. The famous Morrish Mouse and a neat mouse pattern called Count Chocula, yes, after the cereal! You will need 6/0 or 3/0 black tying thread for spinning deer hair! See you there!
