In this video from Backwater Fly Fishing, Jesse Males goes through his favorite 4 types of hooks and their applications. Most fly anglers have probably been dreaming about escaping to some tropical saltwater fly fishing and are spending most of their winter at their vise tying up new flies.
Jesse goes through the pros-and-cons of each hook and why he says these four are the best tarpon hooks on the market, right now. If you’re a novice fly fisherman looking to get into tarpon fishing, this is a great place to get started; but if you’re a more experienced fly fisherman, Jesse’s advice will help you re-consider what fly tying supplies you may want to pick up next time you go into the shop.
Tarpon fishing is by far one of the most daunting challenges in fly fishing to many anglers, but Jesse’s advice helps break down what to look for when you begin tying for your next tarpon adventure.
