Creator: Lefty Kreh

Tarpon Roach is a combination of the Lefty’s Deceiver and the Stu Apte Tarpon Fly.
A very good pattern not only for the Florida Keys but almasot anywhere in Central America and the Caribbean. A very popular fly in the Yucatan for baby tarpon and still used on a regular basis today
