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).
