Sometimes tarpon need a bright fly that is going to punch them in the face and make them eat…this is that fly.


Simple to tie, simple materials list, simple to cast…now you just have to find a fish and give it a go!

With tarpon season still on the rise in many areas now is the time to get out there and test patterns like these in your local waters! Undoubtedly this fly can be used to fish many other species 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 as well as our online fly shop, 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.
