Dr. Aaron Adams, a marine biologist based in Sarasota, Florida, also happens to be an excellent angler and fly tier. His mantis shrimp pattern, Adams' Big Ugly, has caught bonefish all over the tropics. He recommends fishing it on sandy flats pockmarked with mantis shrimp holes. In tan. Sizes 2, 4.

8 to 9 lb Red Caught on Big Ugly
"This fly works well. The first time I tried The Big Ugly I caught reds (up to 9 lbs), speckel trout, & drum . I was fishing the #2 size fly with an 8 wt rod and flyline. I had no problem casting the fly in about a 5 mph wind. It was one fly fishing trip I shall always remember for the rest of my life. I highly recommend this fly for all saltwater species of fish.
