I dig the black death fly. I’ve tied a few, cast maybe a couple and landed a fish on zero of those flies, but they look kind of cool and, let’s be honest, pretty flies catch more anglers than fish. Still, this is a well traveled fly and has stuck many a tarpon and should I get a shot, I’d like to throw one of these again.

There aren’t many kinds of fish for which I don’t have an all black fly pattern. I never go tarpon fishing without some black flies in my box. Redfish love all black flies, especially in murky water. I’ve even caught some nice bonefish on black flies.
