Tarpon Flies

Capt. Vaughn Cochran

Capt. Vaughn Says....Tarpon Flies: Tarpon flies are special to us because fly fishing for tarpon was so much a part of our lives here at The Blackfly Outfitter Fly Shop. Season after season, up early, driving down to Key west to pick up clients, tying flies and guiding 50 to 90 Black & Purple Tarpon Toad days in a row. We love fly fishing for tarpon and we still love tying and designing tarpon flies. Tarpon flies come in many shapes, colors and sizes but tarpon flies have not changed all that much over the years. The exception would be the now famous "toad fly" but tarpon still seem to like the Black Death, several Cockroach patterns and bunny streamers. Let us build you a tarpon kit for any destination with hand tied tarpon leaders built to your specifications. We'll put them in a stretcher box and ship them out to you ready to cast. If you're fishing for tarpon in the Keys, Belize, Mexico, Costa Rica or anywhere, we'll let you use our years of experience to catch fish.
