Hey guys I was wondering how to tie a simple bonito fly. I just want to tie some simple flies for bonito like you see in the tackle shops. Can anyone explain what kind of knot I need to tie and what kind of thread I need.

You can use any thread you have available including mono or braid. Of course for small hooks, something with a thin diameter.

start off with a few wraps around the hook, keep tension, and/or add adhesive or nail polish to hold work in place. Add a layer of material, wrap some more and add adhesive. Repeat until all feather, flashabboo, hackle, etc. are added. Finish with a clinch and add adhesive to finish.

Thank you Red Fish. I was wondering how do you tie the clinch at the end?

The video can show you better than I can explain any knot. For regular freshwater flies, a whip knot or a hand whip is more standard as well just half-hitches. a clinch knot can be used if you can wrap on top of your layers. Gluing it down is going to hod all work together (but a good knot will keep it from unraveling too).

Thanks Red fish. I tied these flies the one farthest to the right I tied with my cousins hair.
