Megalolipop, Dirty Mullet, the Electric Dragon and a Gangster Gurgler. Nope, not the latest adult beverage served up at your favorite bar, these are hand-tied flies that will land you a trophy tarpon or a spectacular snook.
Bonita’s new fly-fishing store, 239 Flies, offers fun fly-tying nights for anyone interested in learning how to wrap thread, fur and a little sparkle around a fishing hook.
Pick up one of its DIY kits that has all the materials necessary to create flies that will surely catch fish in SWFL. Check out 239’s line of rods and reels, too.
