Through all my years of fishing the mangroves for mid- sized poons, my number 1 favorite fly is a Whitlock's Swimming Baitfish, a deer hair slider. This fly has resulted in many, many tarpon and every take is a visual explosion. Weed less or not is a personal option. I choose to eliminate the mono weed guard as I think it is difficult enough to hook a small to mis-sized poon. The bigger ones are easier... More "flesh" and cartlige to sink the same sized hook into, and the big fish are heavy enough that you can't move them during a strip-set.
