Tying Video: Black Death Tarpon Fly

This particular fly follows a classic tarpon fly style and is composed entirely of 3 different types of feathers: marabou, schlappen, and saddle sackle. The contrast and movement of this fly is what triggers most of the strikes.

In this video the fly that is tied is sized up for targeting tarpon in the 5-30 lb range. Larger versions of this fly can be tied when chasing larger fish. Also, switching the black saddle hackle for black marabou is a great variation to the pattern.

If you would like any more information about this fly. Please leave a comment on this page or shoot me an email for more information.

I hope you enjoyed the video. Make sure to Like us on Facebook and Subscribe to Backwater Fly Fishing on Youtube to recieve updates.
