Saltwater Frogs

Let’s mix things up a bit. I don’t fish the slat often, but it doesn’t mean I don’t tie flies for the salt. I often tie orders of tarpon and bonefish flies for clients heading south on their winter vacations. Here is a cool pattern tied up by Capt. Matthew Thomas called the Green Tarpon Toad.

Hook: Gamakatsu SL12S
Eyes: Gold Bead chain

Tail: Chartreuse Marabou

10 Frogs a Leaping

Thanks to The Day Tripper Alex for providing this pattern. The frog is actually a pretty good pattern for pike and bass, and if you have never had the pleasure of experiencing a surface take from a bucket mouth or seen the toothy grin of the snot rocket break the surface for a fly, you are in for a treat. Enjoys your holidays and I’m hoping that you got at least a few new toys for the water or the vise.
