Guanaja Tarpon

Guanaja Tarpon

Tarpon this size do all the things the bigger giants do with a lot less work involved. They are a blast to hook, fight and land. One of the nice things about tarpon like this is we use an extremely simple fly leader for them. Simply use a single piece of Rio Fluoroflex Flourocarbon Tippet material in either #52 or #60 size. We use seven or eight feet of tippet. Tie a loop knot in one end and loop to the fly line and tie the fly to the leader with a 3 wrap No-Slip Loop Knot (make sure it's snugged down).

These level leaders will turn over because of the mass of the material. The fluorocarbon material is very tough and abrasion resistant and will hold up well to a tarpon's mouth.
