Although of low quality, this 2008 YouTube ‘how to tie’ a Tarpon Shrimp, tied at The Caddis Fly in Oregon, has away game statistics in the Florida Keys, Belize, Cuba, and The Bahamas that merits “Don’t Leave Home” without a dozen.
Tie on a ‘tube’ or hook. And remember to keep it small – 1/0 hook size, for example
NOTE: Featured Image is of tarpon on the move. There are many examples of tarpon tied to moon phases like spawning, destination patterns of arrival, and departure. BTT image.
