The one box of flies you need to trick any trigger! The Ultimate Triggerfish Kit is the best selection of our custom triggerfish flies that have been tested around the globe.
Triggers have a particular appetite for brightly colored shrimp and crab patterns as they feed around coral and other prime areas where permit and bonefish are found.
Dave McKenna has a fondness for triggerfish and has put this special collection together. The bright colors, contrast, and movement are what make each of the flies in this kit a confidence fly. If they can see the fly, they will often commit.
Because triggerfish often struggle to see the fly, anglers must make accurate and sometimes repeat casts to a feeding fish until they see the fly. Our custom Flexo Crabs and Tequila Twister Crabs are easy to cast and land without a lot of disturbance.
Triggerfish are notorious destroyers of hooks. We custom-tied each of these flies with the best Umpqua X-Series Flats hooks and XH Flats Jig Hooks. After extensive testing, we believe these to be the most functionally designed flats hooks on the market.
Our extensive background in designing flats flies for the most technical fisheries gives you the ultimate advantage.

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!
