“Mangum’s Dragon Tail” was conceived by David Mangum from Florida. David is a top notch Fly Tier and Guide. With his knowledge and background, the “Dragon Tail” is now available. Final development and procurement was the collaborated efforts by the Orvis Company and Cascade Crest Tools.
The Mangum Dragon Tail is easy to tie and has swimming characteristic like no other streamer or baitfish imitation. The body will wiggle side to side with a slow but steady strip. It will dance and bob when a short fast strip is used. We suggest at least an 8 weight, or heavier rod, and a short 5-7 foot leader with a heavy butt section. Any species that eat baitfish will jump all over this tantalizing pattern. Bass, Tarpon, Red Fish, Sailfish Brown’s, Rainbows, and the list goes on.
