The Tarpon Bunny

A favorite tarpon fly. Red, purple, and black seem to be the best colors. Make sure you use a strong hook just like this Gamakatsu. Traditionally tied with rabbit for the tail, adding the dragon tail makes it even fishier. Try fishing it in freshwater with some dumbbell eyes for pike or bass. This fly has movement!
