Fly line set up for tarpon

I use Sharkskin for my 8wt for winter time saltwater fishing, make sure you wear a glove.

Older books on fishing offer tidbits of information, things that have been forgotten over time.

Fly line set up for tarpon

It's possible, I suppose, that the drawing is misleading and the "handling section" is still very thin. But I don't have experience with either line. The "Tarpon" line I use has a 60ft head and I don't have anything like the amount of time I would have were I fishing for Tarpon. I have 2 seconds for a "sitter".

Cheers, Paul
