Grizzly feather & Purple Arctic Fox Tarpon Fly
I tie a limited number of feathered tarpon flies each year due to the limitations of quality, tarpon sized feather I have in stock. This Tarpon fly is tied with a black grizzly feather splayed tail and a purple arctic fox collar using a deep purple thread. All of my Tarpon flies are epoxy coated and tied rearward to allow of snelling the hook. The hook is a heavy Mustad C70SD in #2/0 size. This fly is slightly smaller than you might have seen. Guides in my area believe that the trend is toward smaller sized flies being used for Tarpon for the greatest success.
