Nice tie Tom. How do you present this fly and what species do you prefer to fish with it for?

I've used it for both permit and bonefish. The guys from Avalon in Cuba take credit for the fly but fished it earlier this year in both Belize and the Keys. Noticed that the beads on the keel were not attached in the photos. Guys change the number of beads to suit the depth of the water they are fishing in from none for tailing fish to several (up to 6) for fishing channels. Hope you get South to try your flies soon.
