“When I go poon hunting, I always have this tarpon fly in my box!”    – Capt. Jesse Males 

Well, here you go folks. Here is a HD photo tutorial that will walk you through the steps of how to tie my version of the Black Death Tarpon Fly. I tie a different variation of this fly for smaller fish. If you would like to see my HD Fly Tying Video for that version simply, CLICK HERE.

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.
