Tarpon Toad by Umpqua // Essential Tarpon Fly


Tarpon Toad Saltwater Fly

This fly is designed for large saltwater and is purpose built for Tarpon. Its 1/0 Tiemco 600 SP hook withstands harsh saltwater for solid hooksets in hard mouthed fish.  While many hooks get spit out after one jump, we have found that this fly tends to keep fish pinned up and landed, while other hooks simply come free.

We fish this pattern on pretty much all of our Tarpon adventures, but it has proven itself especially effective in the lagoons of Ascension Bay in open water.
