( 1 Review )
Hook Size *

Current stock: 0

In August 1990, a tying vise, an inkling of a concept and a six pack of beer brought everything together and the Turck Tarantula was born. At it's public debut, in September 1990, it took first place honors at the Jackson Hole One Fly Event in the able hands of George Anderson. In the intervening years, it has become one of the most popular fly patterns in Jackson Hole and is being discovered and used by more and more fly fishers throughout the country and world.
