Tarpon Toad Fly

The Tarpon Toad has rapidly become one of "THE" flies for Tarpon. The Tarpon Toad was developed by Gary Merriman and tarpon fishing has never been the same since. The Tarpon Toad in this video has been tied with no flash (that is how I prefer them), but they can be tied with a couple strands of krystal flash in the tail. Also, the toad in this video was tied with with the rabbit strip right side up. I have always tied them this way and prefer that style. The developer, Gary Merriman, initially tied the toad with the rabbit strip tied upside down. The Tarpon Toad is most commonly tied in Chartreuse, but many other color variations (Black and Purple) have been introduced to the fly fishing scene. Do not leave on a Tarpon trip without them!!
