Need flies? Here are the best Cayman bonefish and tarpon flies. Click to see details and fly tying recipes. Some are super-easy to tie and some have a few too many parts, but all catch fish. Of course, there are other flies that work as well, but these are a few of my favorites patterns for Grand Cayman bonefish, tarpon, snook, jacks, cudas, and snappers. (Note that all the bonefish flies have weed guards.)
