The saltwater worm is here. I personally designed Dave's Tarpon Worm with a proprietary mini tail and a few turns of Semperfli Guard Hair Chenille.
Dave's Tarpon Worm darts and wiggles like no other fly. When tarpon have seen all the old reliable patterns, Dave's Tarpon Worm will swim more like the natural worms that are triggering their feeding response.
These will also do well on any other inshore fish that are targeting worm hatches like Atlantic striped bass.
These are tied on #1 Kona Big Game Hunter hooks to ensure fast penetration and the strength to land huge fish on small flies.
I am sure you will be impressed by the results!
Meet the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild. They are the primary supplier and designers for Guide Flies and the inspiration to pass on the art of fly tying to this incredibleisland community.
It started by recognizing the natural fly tying talent that existed in the community of Guanaja. The guides and family members of the Fly Fish Guanaja staff had learned the basics of fly tying and made creative flies for technical permit and bonefish that were not easily fooled.
Over the the last three years they have worked hard to perfect their craft. What began as an experiment in the beach front cabana, has turned into one of the greatest small business opportunities for the Island of Guanaja.
The team of fly tyers that make the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild is instructed and led by Dave McKenna. They work daily to make the custom tied flies you can purchase through our website. They are self managed and work with an entrepreneurial approach to their business of fly tying.
Through the challenges of passing hurricanes and the Covid-19 pandemic, they have persevered and worked with pride to make the flies we offer here.
We all thank you sincerely for the support and orders that have helped bring the entire team through the hardest parts of the past year. We are very excited to share our newest flies and designs with you!
