How to Fish the Keys Classics
Tarpon fishermen have been fishing splayed hackle flies in the Keys for decades. The Lemon Drop is an evolution of Steve Huff’s White Lightning designed by Rick Murphy that makes for an excellent oceanside pattern particularly towards the end of the season. The Creamsicle is another Huff pattern that’s been around for a long time and taken more than its fair share of tarpon in the backcountry. And the Run Around Sue is a lighter version of Fitz Coker’s Coker Smoker which is a great, soft landing shrimp imitation for clear water basins. Each of our Classics are patterns you’ll still find in the boxes of veteran Tarpon guides.
