Great Tarpon Magnet in Belize,

"I bought a couple of these flies for a saltwater trip to Belize around Christmas time. I had never had a chance to cast to tarpon before, so I relied on the advice of the Orvis guys at the shop to help me select flies. When I got on the water, my guide said we should try the black death, and it was the only fly I needed to hook and land my first 3 tarpon. After the trip, a good friend asked which flies worked for my tarpon, so I went back and bought more of these flies for my fly box and I also sent some to my friends."

"This fly is a great one for tarpon, but had caught jack cravelle, yellowtail, albacore, and mahi with it.
It is also one of those flies that you try when nothing else seems to work, and "boom", fish on!
