What do redfish have in common with a permit? Other than fighting like pit bulls, they both love to eat crabs in grass flats, estuaries, and mud bottom lagoons. We packed our new Redfish Fly Kits with the hottest color Flexo Crabs and Yum Yum Shrimp that redfish can't resist.
Guide Flexo's make the perfect redfish flies for the same reasons they became the most well-known permit flies. They get into the feeding zone fast, they are easy to cast and land very quietly on tailing fish. We tie these on premium Gamakatsu hooks and include weed guards on every redfish fly. For the bull redfish or trophy jack that isn't shy about a large meal, we include our 2/0 Zeus Crabs in Blue Crab.
Each Redfish Kit includes a selection of:
Zeus Crabs- 2/0
Guide Flexo's- Hot Green
Guide Flexo's- Blue Crab
Guide Flexo's- Purple/Pink
Guide Flexo's- Hot Pink/ Lt. Pink
Guide Flexo's- Spawning Orange

Guide Twister Crab- White/OJ
Meet the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild. They are the primary supplier and designers for Guide Flies and the inspiration to pass on the art of fly tying to this incredibleisland community.
It started by recognizing the natural fly tying talent that existed in the community of Guanaja. The guides and family members of the Fly Fish Guanaja staff had learned the basics of fly tying and made creative flies for technical permit and bonefish that were not easily fooled.
Over the the last three years they have worked hard to perfect their craft. What began as an experiment in the beach front cabana, has turned into one of the greatest small business opportunities for the Island of Guanaja.
The team of fly tyers that make the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild is instructed and led by Dave McKenna. They work daily to make the custom tied flies you can purchase through our website. They are self managed and work with an entrepreneurial approach to their business of fly tying.
Through the challenges of passing hurricanes and the Covid-19 pandemic, they have persevered and worked with pride to make the flies we offer here.
We all thank you sincerely for the support and orders that have helped bring the entire team through the hardest parts of the past year. We are very excited to share our newest flies and designs with you!
