Hand Tied Fly | Squimp | Brown | Mike Smith X Manready Mercantile

Squimp (Brown)

A popular permit fly, the squimp is was designed by a Houston local a couple decades ago. He claims it is part shrimp, part squid, but all fish catching goodness. The fish agree, and this version is equally at home on a flat in Belize or a marsh in South Carolina.

  • Durable synthetic materials
  • Target species: Permit, Redfish, Bonefish

          All flies are hand tied in Houston, Texas by Mike Smith at Manready Mercantile. We use only premium materials, and all patterns have been fished and refined in their ideal waters. For questions or custom inquiries, please email
