How to tie tarpon flies: Bunny Toad Jr.

This fly is a variation of the tarpon toad shrimp from a couple months ago. It’s a very effective fly pattern for juvenile tarpon — but it will work for big boys as well. Shrimp tend to have an orange egg sack, and a little orange maraboue skirt on this shrimp pattern really lights the fly up. You could also tie this fly in black and purple for night-time fly fishing.
