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.
