The Sand Whiting has sometimes been called the poor man’s Bonefish - after the legendary ‘white fox’ of tropical sand flats around the world - keenly sought by saltwater fly fishers.
I found this fly very interesting and started tying the Beach Bug in colours that gave the impression of a saltwater Yabby or Pink Nipper. We all grew up as kids pumping Yabbies with dad and catching all manner of fish on them live, so it was only natural to modify the colours to give the impression of a major food source for our species.
We were lucky enough to get Jeff between his epic trips and find what makes him tick. This is his story...
