Tarpon Cockroach

The Cockroach is a classic and very effective Tarpon Fly. The Cockroach is simple fly to tie and is a basic pattern for any Tarpon fly box. The Tarpon Cockroach has many modern variations, this video demonstrates the simple and classic version of the Cockroach. The Cockroach can be tied big or small, depending on the location and finickiness of the Tarpon. A #1/0 Cockroach is great for the Florida Keys, where Tarpon are spooky and more educated. A larger Cockroach, such as a #2/0 0r #3/0 is great for Mexico. A great fly and a must have for any Tarpon box!

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
