Tying Video: Ghost Rat Tarpon Fly

Here is a pattern that I have been using to throw at baby poon in the canals and mosquito ditches of Florida’s east coast. This lil dude gets em pumped up. The EP Minnow Brush head and the craft fur tail do a great job of creating a nice taper on the fly. This fly lights up the water on a sunny day and can be fished in a variety of different situation. Snook and sea trout seem to be a big fan of this pattern as well.

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
