WT, those are AWESOME! The little pectoral fins really sell the pattern. Here are some swimmers that fell out of my vise recently, which those in the saltwater swap will be receiving:

Once again I will be traveling to Florida for the Holidays to stay with my girlfriend's family and friends. There is talk of a backcountry trip to the everglades, a few days on a sailboat in the keys, and a few days of possible shore fishing in miami/biscayne area. I never know what to expect other than to be patient and ready (like any good predator!)
Last summer I finally got a few salt fish on the fly (cuda, bone, and some snapper). I have never cast at a tarpon, and only seen a few. The few sightings I have had let me know exactly why they are such a desired species.
Not even sure I will have a chance to cast these, but when the chance arises, I hope to be ready. If not this trip then the next. In addition to p00n punchers, and some other known patterns, I tied up a new batch to add to the box.

All in 3/0 except the bottom one is 6/0. The two yellow flies are tied with intention of shark, mackerel, or barracuda; both have pre-tied 30lb. steelon leader already attached for quick access.

AJ, thanks for the advice! I've got about 10 smaller minnows in #4-8 drying, (white belly/black back, white belly/purple back baby mullets, and tan chamois spoon style minnows).

After tying up a few final clousers for the saltwater box, I decided to start playing some deer hair.

I wanted more of a pencil popper shape and wanted the back end to squat after a strip. To achieve this, the back hair was tapered down to a very small diameter and I put a couple of post wraps on the feather base so they pointed up ever so slightly.

The result is a popper with a butt that lifts slightly on the strip and then squats on the pause.

I also treated the front face with UV knot sense to ensure it stays stiff and slightly cupped. It's a nice way to really add and hold shape to the face of these things.

P.S. Crappy picture - took it with the phone and in a bit of a hurry. The wife was getting aggravated with me for locking myself in the fly room

I guess i haven't gotten all the Jungle cock wings out of my system yet. Goin to try some more deer hair head and wing/legs. I think it may work good as a muddler variation or perhaps as a caddis.

tail: dyed red deer hair
body: synthetic peacock herl flash
wings: jungle cock
collar/head: dyed brown deer hair.
