San Pedro Special for tarpon

Creator: unknown

This is the laid up tarpon special for fly fishing in the backwater and mangroves.
The juvenile tarpon of Campeche love it. Even the large, saavy migrating trapon of mosquito in Belize can’t resist it. It lands light and will not spook fish as readily as other bulky flies or wet rabbit hair patterns. They seem to really be enticed by the orange and tan combination.
Its a real killer!
