Barrett’s Toad Tarpon Shrimp: Fly tying video

Barrett shows you how to tie his favorite tarpon pattern in this fly tying video. The Craft Fur Shrimp is a great fly for pressured tarpon in the Northern Florida Keys. The little 1/0 hook penetrates better than some of the bigger hooks of the same style. Creating barring with the sharpie will give you illusion of movement — a good trigger for strikes.
