Official selection of the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour
By Keith Rose-Innes
Every so often a fly pattern evolves to significantly change the odds of enticing the most difficult fish species, which have been driving fishing guides and anglers to the brink of sanity for decades. Alphlexo is the story of how the Alphonse Fishing Company guides combined and evolved various patterns, to finally tie a fly that has revolutionized the odds of catching Indo-Pacific permit. The Alphlexo is a hybrid that combines flies like the Flexo Crab, Orvice Crab and various others to change the odds of catching the most technical fish that swim the flats of the Seychelles. The end result is a crab that an angler can confidently cast at an Indo-Pacific permit with a true belief that they have a chance at a reaction or even striking gold.
