Classic Saltwater #19---Apte Tarpon Fly

Although Homer Rhode tied a fly very similar to this one years before..this is the standard by which all others are measured.. ..This fly would imitate the favorite food of the tarpon, the Palolo worm. Rhode did tie a very similar fly but it was Apte who popularized it but Rhodes deserves mention when posting this copy. Apte's first fly was yellow and red.
