Fly Fishing Tarpon At Boca Paila

Fly Fishing Tarpon At Boca Paila

Jared Ehlers of The Fly Fishers caught a number of tarpon too. The baby tarpon are fun size fish to fight without all of the work of the giant tarpon. The babies still have rough mouths so you need a shock tippet. Our simple leader formula for these fish is a straight 7 or 8 foot piece of Rio #52 Fluoroflex fluorocarbon tippet. It's heavy enough to turn over without any taper. Use a No-Slip Loop Knot with only 3 wraps for the knot.
