The Tarpon Buckle for 1.5 in belts shown here with the satin finish

Silver is the perfect metal for a Tarpon belt buckle since the Tarpon is often known as the "Silver King". Like all the fish buckles I have carved, the tarpon are all individuals. The Tarpon buckle is about 2 inches from hood to loop and will add about that much to the length of your belt.  

This buckle is about 1.75 inches wide overlapping the belt on the top and bottom and designed to fit 1.5 inch wide belts. This carving was done mainly from pictures of the large fish over 100 lb. The silver buckles naturally change and develop a dark patina along the top and in the recesses and stays silver on the sides giving them a natural fish coloration.

Tarpon can often be found in brackish or freshwater near mangroves or in residential canals and almost anywhere on the lagoons and beaches in Florida, They love the pass at Boca Grand. They like the warm water. Tarpon are slow growers and mature between 7 to 13 years of age. Spawning occurs between May and September when females may lay more than 12 million eggs each. Tarpon can tolerate wide range of salinity from fresh to very salty estuary waters. Juvenile tarpon are commonly found in fresh water and can breathe air at surface. Tarpon feed mainly on fish and large crustaceans.
