Cockroach

Hook: Gamakatsu SC-15, size 3/0
Thread: Black or bright orange Flat Waxed Nylon.
Wing: Three pairs of wide grizzly hackle feathers.
Flash: Copper Flashbou Accent.
Collar: Fox or gray squirrel tail hair tied all the way around the hook shank.
Head: Built up with the tying thread and then coated with clear head cement or five-minute epoxy.

Tying note: The real difference between the Cockroach and many other tarpon patterns is that squirrel hair is substituted for the hackle collar. Clip the butt ends of the hair off at an angle to create a smooth underbody for the thread head.
