General Discussion / Getting ready for Tarpon on fly
« on: August 12, 2013, 07:53:59 PM »
I went to POC thinking I would try for a jack or bull red on fly. Didn't happen.. but did get this tarpon on live croaker in 40 feet at POC jetty with Curtiss Cash aka Lowtide Guide Service. I did get a feel for what fighting a tarpon is like.
Estimated 90 lbs.

General Discussion / Just read "Passion for Tarpon" by Andy Mill

I just finished reading the book generously lent to me by one of our members. It is a $100 book. I could not put it down. Highly recommend it. All 475 pages.

I ordered the DVD  "Chasing Silver" which there is a "teaser" DVD with the book. I think would make a great meeting presentation.

Well, I wanted to come to this one. But.....we are leaving on that Sunday for vacation. I intended to bring the Shallow Sport down and haul Quigley. I wasn't going to "keel haul" him though.
