We have caught tarpon (small ones and big ones) on both the airhead and the flexfleye in the big rivers south of Placencia. We fished both flies in browns, greys and tan and I am assuming they look like the little mullet in the rivers. I think some big jacks also and I bet they would be great on snook too. They are big flies and push a lot of water which makes a difference in those turbid rivers and creeks. They don't match the hatch very well on the cayes when the tarpon are focused on little bitty bait. I think I caught about 20 nice roosters too last May by Cerralvo Island on the flex and plenty of other fish were caught by others on the airhead.
