EP Ghost Shrimp

The EP Ghost Shrimp is a very effective Bonefish Fly developed by Enrico Puglisi.  The EP Ghost Shrimp imitates a small semi-translucent shrimp that bonefish prey on.  The EP Ghost Shrimp can be tied in may color variations.  Tan, White and Brown are the most commonly tied, but Olive and Pink are also good colors.  The EP Ghost Shrimp can be tied with either Lead eyes or Beadchain eyes.  Both are a must in any bonefish box (depending on the depth and spookiness of the fish).  Great little fly and the weed guard eyes are a really neat touch!!
