    How to Tie Tim Borski's Slider
    The Borski Slider was originally invented for Bonefish but has quickly morphed into a fly that's well-known for its ability to fool picky redfish. Thi baitfish imitation works well in shallow water marshes and sandy flats when targeting fish with a large appetite. The fly is relatively easy to tie, especially the back half, but does involve spinning some Deer Hair. The Deer Hair acts as a natural weed guard on the hook and makes it an even better pattern for areas with grassy bottoms. If you're headed to the southeastern US this winter to chase Redfish (like we are), don't go without a few of these flies.

    The Spawning Mantis is a stellar pattern for the Bahamas and particularly South Andros. The orange color in the fly attracts the attention of Bonefish on the flats and fishes well in shallow water. The fly's extra weight helps it drop quickly to land in the feeding zone every cast. This pattern can, of course, be used almost anywhere there are shrimp and is a phenomenal pattern on sandy flats. It's also pretty simple to tie with multiple repeating steps so it's a great pattern for novice saltwater tyers and anglers. Read on for detailed step-by-step instructions.

  7. How to Choose the Best Fly Reel for Tarpon

    How to Choose the Best Fly Reel for Tarpon
    Ahhhh the famous Silver King. Similar to Permit, Tarpon drive anglers into a wild frenzy of frustration, anxiety, and exhaustion. Seriously, large Tarpon are incredibly difficult to wrangle on a fly rod. Tarpon have a way of humbling even the most experienced anglers with their 100+ lb size and their infamous leaping line rips. Even when all the variables are in the angler's favor they're still one of the toughest fish to catch on a fly rod. So it's almost a necessity to have the very best gear if you want a chance at a 100+ lb Tarpon. Skills aside, the right gear and a bit of luck go a long way. If you hook up to a big Tarpon with an old reel that's rusted and worn... good luck. I'd take the Tarpon over the fly reel every time. Here's how to choose the right fly reel.
