Flies for the silver king can alter depending on your destination, but some tried-and-true patterns work everywhere. Whether you're fishing in the northern Yucatan for juvenile tarpon or the Florida Keys for larger, migratory fish, having the right tarpon flies is an essential component of your fishing system. The design of tarpon flies varies, but they commonly feature flashy materials like synthetic fibers, flashabou, and mylar, which imitate the scales and shine of baitfish that tarpon feed on. Popular color combinations include rust, black/purple, and chartreuse, as these colors tend to be effective in attracting the attention of tarpon in different water conditions. Our fly shop carries a comprehensive selection of tarpon flies from major brands such as Umpqua and Enrico Puglisi.
