Default Cup Of Tarpon Death~byron!!!

I forgot how fun it is to spin deer hair! I got a little over zealous with what I bought today! Had fun messing up the entire down stairs of my house with black marabou! It's floating around everywhere! Any who here's the pics and thanks again Byron!




Wished I would have snatched up some purple closed cell foam now! Oh well, I think that's reasoning enought to go to the fly shop the second we get there!

Thanks again!

Nice looking fly! I tie some buggers for smallies using those color combos. You should try them out on a sinktip over on the LR. You might be surprised!

Great job on the flies. The pattern is a Cathead and we've jumped a lot of tarpon on them. The sample I gave you was tied by Jack Gregory. Yours look perfect. Good luck on your trip.

Nice looking flies. A pattern similar to that is a killer for babies down here and big fish early in the morning, especially in the Everglades. Nothing like seeing a huge fish erupt below the fly in an effort to inhale it, certainly a vision that sticks with you. Just resist the temptation to "trout set" and you'll be o.k.

Looks good, but it is even better with wide splayed hackle.
