Tarpon on the Fly...Written by Captain Dan
I hit a new milestone in my fishing career today and guided Oscar and Arno to a giant Crystal River tarpon on the fly rod. Oscar is a very well respected fly fisherman in the fishing community and it was a real treat to have him on board. Also along with us for the day was Oscars guest Arno from South Africa, and he was the man with the tarpon. We fished out of my tarpon rigged Silver King skiff and as luck would have it, hooked in to a beauty. The fight was fantastic and it took and hour and ten minutes to bring the fish boat side on one of my personally tied flies. We grabbed the leader for a legal catch, watched her swim away and this day was a memorable one. Thank you both for a great time and here is Arno hooked up in action... Capt. Dan
