Spam and Eggs – Bonefish Shrimp Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Spam and Eggs is bonefish fly pattern developed for large Bonefish by Coach Duff in Hawaii.  The Spam and Eggs imitates a Mantis Shrimp, which is one of the largest food sources for Big Hawaiian Bonefish.  The Spam and Eggs signature look is the spider like legs that splay out to each side.  These legs move and undulate in the current, which entices the fish to eat.  The Spam and Eggs can also be tied in Olive colors.  But the Tan color is the most popular and effective.  A must have in any Hawaiian Bonefish fly box!
