Now that I spend winters in Florida I need to find a couple of reputable on line sellers of salt water flies. All of my tying materials were left in Maine so I need to spend some money on good flies.

Last night I had my first experience casting to a school of tarpon in a lagoon near my place, and it was stunning. No hook ups but watching the waves as a several approached and bumped my fly made my day!

Any suggestions for both effective tarpon flies and on line companies?

These are two I have found so far:

Thanks

SS Flies in Denmark (Maine). Peter Smith does a helluva job for the Florida Keys Tarpon Guides. Not cheap...but you don't WANT cheap when messing with those Silver Beasts.

Peter Does a great job and is worth every penny, I have fished with Peter in The keys and In Maine his Approach to details and concern on how the fly moves in the water, is second to none and worth every penny!!!!! I have Peter and Tim at ss flies duplicating many of my striper patterns for me as well purchase a ton of there stock tarpon and permit patterns each season..
