Default Tarpon Toad, Ant Body Saltwater Fly, and 24 K Baitfish

Went to the vise last night and had a little of fly tying "a-d-d". Tied up a couple randoms.

Chartreuse/Yellow Tarpon Toad (per request of the guide I am fishing with)

Ant Body Saltwater Fly (saw a video on another site of someone tying this fly. lots of movement with the Rabbit zonker tail and rabit fur dubbing brush.)

Click the image to open in full size.

24 K Baitfish (self-named. Sure its been tied before.. I used a shoelace covering I found at the dollar store and clear cure goo.)

What did you use for the body of the tarpon toad? And where is your guided tarpon trip going to be?

The body of the Toad is mcfly yarn and congo hair. The tail is marabou and cross cut yellow zonker.

Im fishing several places from Boca area all the way down to the 10,000 islands. The guide in Charlotte Harbor told me chart/yellow toad, along with several other color patterns. (all chart, all purple, purple/black, etc.)
