Tarpon Toad is one of the most remarkable Tarpon flies of our time! It was designed to it's final form by Gary Merriman from Harry Spear's Tasty Toad Bonefish fly. When developing this fly Gary investigated different videos of how other Tarpon flies moved in the water. He noticed that most flies had a jigging action that natural bait fish does not have. Thus he started to develop his fly for Tarpon from Spear's killer pattern. The result was the Tarpon Toad as we know it today - a true must have pattern for any Tarpon fanatic!
Tarpon Toad is a very lively swimming pattern that does not have noticeable jigging action. The body results the fly to sink very slow in good balance. Thus one can work this fly in very shallow water and also strip it right beneath the surface.
The Marabou version of the fly was created by Capt. Tim Hoover. He together with a well known Tarpon angler Andy Mill have won numerous Tarpon fishing competitions with this version of Tarpon Toad.
Tied into a high quality chemically sharpened corrosion resistant strong hook. We recommend to rinse the fly in fresh water after every fishing day.
Hook sizes 1/0 and 2/0 are found to be the best fish catchers in areas with a lot of fishing pressure such as in Florida.
