The silver king…appropriately named.
With scales the size of silver dollars and a mouth that could swallow a dachshund, the tarpon brings shivers to most fly anglers. On the flats these large fish are easily spotted and the hunt begins. With knees knocking, you aim your cast to intercept a pod of fish as they approach your boat. One fish peels from the pack and falls in behind your fly. With a quick thrust of its powerful tail, the tarpon closes the gap and engulfs your fly. What happens next must be lived to be understood.
Below are perfectly balanced fly fishing solutions, hand-assembled so you can successfully fly fish for tarpon.
This little guy puts the necessities at your fingertips. Attach it to one strap of your waders, wader belt, chest or waist pack, kit bag, the possibilities are endless.
