In the middle of a boiling bluefish blitz off the coast of Nantucket...Casting to bonito ripping up bait in an inlet...Searching for seatrout and reds amidst the windswept beaches of the Outer Banks...To snook and tarpon lying near the tangled mangroves...In the glare and the pristine beauty of the bonefish flats...In the bluewater eddies of the Gulf Stream...In these magical places, and many others, the saltwater fly rodder plys his trade. In his hand, the coiled line, stripping, stripping, ready for the strike. At the end of the line, a fly; a feathered hook to tempt the most awesome denizens of the brine.

Here's a wonderful way to display any special saltwater fly. Maybe it's one that you've tied, or one that caught an incredible fish. Outside dimensions of this box measure just a tad larger than 6x8 inches, and it's about 3/4 of an inch thick. The maximum length of the "viewable" area is about 7 inches, so there are many beautiful streamer flies will display very nicely in this box. Smaller flies can be displayed as a set! Soft cotton lining, with a glass front - just pull the pins on the sides of the box, put your fly in, and display! Share your creations with your friends and family, or just enjoy them yourself. $8.99/ea.

Tarpon Slider (Tarpon Mouse)
Recently added to our selection of saltwater flies is this excellent Tarpon Slider or "Tarpon Mouse" - a classic style of fly for a wide variety of tarpon fishing situations. Bouyant deer hair head keeps fly fishing at or near the surface where tarpon like to bite! Tied on strong, super-sharp Gamakatsu SL12 hooks - this is one style of tarpon fly that we never leave the dock without. A very important pattern for day or night, we love the explosive strikes that often come to this style of fly! Tarpon Slider #1/0 Barred Tan: $7.49/ea Add to Cart. See our Fly Selection page for links to more info about this and other tarpon flies.
These days I'm often using one of the ZAP "super glues" to increase the durability of my saltwater flies - a quick hit on the thread wraps here and there makes the flies really tough! The green label stuff that we sell is basically all-purpose, and can even be used as a "head cement" to finish the fly. Anyway, the "trick" offered here is that ZAP offers what they call their "Extender Tips" or "Flexi Tips" - we don't sell these, but they are easily available at many hobby & craft stores - these very fine plastic nozzle tips can be put on the super glue bottles, and left like this on the bench during tying - there's no need to keep putting the cap back on, as the nozzles can be left on for hours without clogging. I do keep a small rag handy to quickly clean up any spills and to keep the extender tips clean.
We've got a new feature going here at Saltwaterflies.com with more of these little suggestions; "Windy's Tips n Tricks" - click the link to check it out. - Chris Windram
