About the fly:

The tarpon toad is an essential tarpon fly. If we could only have one it would be this one. If we could have just two, one would be the chartreuse 1/0 variation in the video, the second would be a 2/0 black/purple variation. Below is the exact list of color/size materials we use in the video. But as always the beauty of fly tying is your ability to customize colors and sizes to your needs.

Helpful tools/additional materials:

Cleaning up stray fibers:
For flattening tips of mono:
For creating the dubbing loop:
For poking hole in rabbit strip for guard:
