Product Description

The Cockroach is a classic pattern that evolved in the Florida Keys for Tarpon in the days before the modern era of synthetic fly tying materials. Tied to imitate shrimp and other crustaceans, it is dressed sparsely, tied mostly with natural materials, and constructed on a very strong, sharp hook.

The materials are tied at the end of the hook shank to prevent wrapping, the material used is soft long saddle hackles which are great for adding extra movement to the fly, especially on a slow stripping style that we use for Tarpon.

Still a great pattern today, black been a favorite in discoloured water.
