One of my clients wanted a tarpon fly with a little pizazz. This is what we cooked up. He used it and tarpon ate it.
I no longer cover the whole shank of the hook with thread because many people like to snell their flies to the shock tippet and need a bare surface to do it. If you would like the entire hook shank wrapped in the traditional manner, please let me know in the Special Instructions box at checkout.
