petevicar Hi Jim

For bones in the Keys I would use Borski type patterns or a Tasty toad.

For tarpon, it seems that these days most people down there are talking about toad flies.

Flies for Keys Bones and Tarpon Please?

June 8th, I'm heading to the Middle FL Keys (Grassykey & DuckKey. I can't wait I've been tying flies here and there but recently was doing some steelhead fishing. Decent run in WI, caught some real nice fish w/ one fresh chrome female take me into my backing on my Abel Super 8. First time a steelhead took me into my backing was very cool. But Steelhead is basically over reswitching to salt mode.

This trip is all DIY. Had 2 guides before out of Keys and was not happy with them. I know there is good guides but frankly there is something about doing it on your own w/ no time schedule fishing as early or later as one wants.

We are renting a flats boat, I also have have Garmin GPS and recently bought the SW FL Bluechart for FL ($57on ebay I stole it!!). If you have GPS coordinates I'll take em, the more info the merrier.

Will be fishing ocean and bay side.

Get a healthy doese of good karma and indulge your fishing secrets. I believe in good fishing karma, from helping people and people helping me and I If you don't want to post your secret feel free to PM. I understand some spots can't handle the world wide web fishing them. Lastly I will not share secrets.

I can't wait!!
