Tying the Black Death Tarpon Toad - Dr. Reynaldo Ramirez, Jr.
Tying the Single Flat Wing Fly - Jack Keller
Tying Lefty's Deceiver
This fly was tied by Jack Keller on September 3, 2013. The flatwing can be fished without much movement from the angler since its design and materials allow for a natural movement mimicking an injured baitfish. It can be fished just by allowing it to drift in the current. This is also a very easy fly to cast and does not cause much drag for it's size.
Lefty Kreh designed this fly as a baitfish pattern back in the 1950's and it still continues to catch all species of gamefish. Watch the underwater shots of the fly as it moves through the water to get an idea about why this is such a popular pattern.
This pattern was the featured fly at the February 2014 fly tying session held at Harlingen's Bass Pro Shop.
It's another easy to cast fly. To make it swim deeper, wire can be added. Of course, an epoxy head would add probably enough weight and not ruin the swimming action.
Compton's Crawfish Pattern
This is a great crawfish pattern that sinks to where fish expect to find this kind of creature. We tied this pattern at our fly tying session and it went very well.
Here's the items:
Size 4 or 6 streamer hook
Black 210 Ultra Thread
20# Mono for Weedguard
Mallard Duck Flank
Brown Swiss Straw
Plastic Dumb Bell Eyes
Red Squirrel Tail for Claws
Brown Hackle for Legs
Coipper/Brown Ultra Wire
.25 Lead Wire
This is a youtube video of a pattern that has been used worldwide to catch tarpon. The black death color pattern produces strikes from tarpon and a variety of other fish. This is a simple pattern that combines not only the color pattern, but also the toad fly characteristics. The fly was tied by Dr. Reynaldo Ramirez on April 14, 2015.
