      The Eat Me is one of our best selling flies and one of the most productive baitfish patterns around. The Ole Florida style Eat Me differs from Capt. Scott Hamilton’s original in that all the materials are tied on top of the hook. This helps prevent fouling.

      Due to popular demand, we’ve uploaded an Eat Me tying instructions video. The video includes tips on tapering the Super Hair and creating the epoxy head. Mastering those enables you to modify colors and size to match the baitfish that your target species is feeding on. The Olive/Polar Bear fly in the video is our standard pilchard imitation that consistently fools snook, tarpon, dolphin, albies and a multitude of other inshore and offshore saltwater species.
