The Absolute Flea saltwater streamer is a specialized fly pattern, expertly adapted for targeting permit, one of the most elusive and prized saltwater game fish. This streamer is designed to mimic the small crabs and shrimp that permit feed on, making it an essential pattern for saltwater flats fishing.
Featuring a more robust and larger hook size than its freshwater counterpart, the Absolute Flea saltwater streamer is crafted to withstand the strength and power of permit and bonefish. The body of the fly is tied with durable, yet natural-looking tan dubbing, to closely resemble the crustaceans found in permit habitats. The addition of realistic legs, made from silicone materials, enhances the fly’s lifelike appearance and movement in the water.
The fly is weighted with small bead chain eyes, not only to help it sink to the bottom where permit feed but also to create a subtle, enticing movement as the fly is retrieved. The design ensures that the fly lands softly, an essential feature when fishing in shallow, clear waters where permit are easily spooked.
When fishing the Absolute Flea, anglers should focus on flats and shallow areas where permit are known to forage. A slow, steady retrieve that mimics the natural movement of a crab or shrimp is often most effective. This fly is also ideal for sight fishing, allowing anglers to cast accurately to visible permit and watch as the fish moves to take the fly.
The Absolute Flea is a must-have in the fly box of any angler pursuing permit. Its combination of realistic imitation and durable construction makes it an invaluable tool for challenging the notoriously finicky permit on the flats.
