The Tarpon Slider or "Tarpon Mouse" is a true classic for a wide variety of tarpon fishing situations. Bouyant deer hair head keeps fly fishing at or near the surface where tarpon like to bite! Tied on strong, super-sharp Gamakatsu SL12 hooks - this is one style of tarpon fly that we never leave the dock without. A very important pattern for day or night, we love the explosive strikes that often come to this style of fly! The smaller size #2 is a fantastic fly for snook, baby tarpon, and all sorts of other backcountry species - the #2 fly features a monofilament weedguard. Barred Cream shown above; more photos: Barred Tan, Barred Chartreuse/Tan, Blurple, and Black Death. All of these versions produced very well indeed for us on a recent trip to the Carribean.
