These qualities, and the fact that it can be tied in a wide range of colors, makes the Scorpion appeal to many different types of fish. This pattern has caught everything that I've thrown it at. On the first day I used it, I caught a four-pound mangrove snapper with a chartreuse version. Given the snapper's keen eyesight and picky nature, I knew I had a special fly on my hands. Since then, it has consistently fooled snappers. The Scorpion has also caught redfish, ladyfish, jack crevalle, lookdown, and snook. Barracuda cannot resist it, and it is by far my most productive spotted seatrout fly. It has even fooled a small sawfish. I have not had a chance to throw a Scorpion at a bonefish yet, but I would make book that they would love one tied on a size 4 hook. And tarpon? The Scorpion has fooled tarpon from 5 to 50 pounds. All in salt water, by the way, where God intended for them to be caught.
