Best Snook Flies: Patterns & Step By Step Tying Instructions
As a local bird here in Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island’s picturesque beaches and world class beach snook fly fishing are only a half a cup of coffee and two Hank Williams Jr. songs away.
Over the last dozen plus seasons of chasing snook, I have refined my packing list down to just the key essentials required for a full day on the beach. Most of the time I have a spare rod in the car just in case, but for the most part I try to pack light, and not haul to much stuff around on the beach…
That goes for fly patterns too! For those of you who have bought your ticket, here’s the patterns I would suggest you bring, along with a few tips that might help close the deal if the snook get picky!
If you’d like to learn how to tie some of the most effective flies for snook, check out my books Snook Flies and Snook Flies 2 where I share detailed step-by-step instructions with high resolutions for each pattern.
