The World's Best Tarpon Fly
The Tarpon Bunny in these colors triggers strikes like nothing else I've ever used. I've caught tarpon with it here on Pine Island, throughout the Keys, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. It also works great on sea trout and and a handful of other inshore species. Our stinking catfish even seem to be liking it these days, unfortunately.
It's an exceptionally easy pattern to tie and is also available at most fly shops. If you're heading anywhere near some tarpon you'll need a half dozen of these in your box. You can buy them locally at Florida Paddlesports or shoot me an e-mail and I'll get a box to you.
