Jimmy's Sand Shark Fly
Flies designed by the Sandshark expert Jimmy Eagleton, and tied by Ryan Wojt.
Four bead chain eyes to help it sit correctly and to give them a bit of a rattle.
The Circle hooks avoid foul hooking, and the hackle over the hook helps to tickle the shark before it feels the hook.
Method: Cast ahead of the sandshark / guitarfish with a sinking line so that fish is heading towards fly. When fish is above the fly give a long slow pull. And hang on for the ride. A 6wt outfit with a short leader is ideal.
Pro Tip for Jimmy's Sand Shark Fly: Tie a 4mm tungsten bead into your tippet knot loop. It helps the fly go down and settle faster.
