 Yesterday, I had the pleasure of guiding Kasey Nelson on his first Tarpon trip.
The picture says it all ! It doesn't get much better than this. His first cast to his first Tarpon, perfect execution and he was hooked up to a 150 # "BIG GIRL".
 It was great to see his face as she danced on the water after the hook up.
His comment to me was " I couldn't believe I was hooked to that frieght train ".
Unfortunately she broke of after 40 minutes, but I think Kasey now has the fever that inflicts so many fly fisherman this time of year, "Tarpon Fever".

Yes, August is here and the Tarpon have returned to the rivers and back country. 

Lynn Skipper had fun with his 10wt outfit on Sunday morning tackling a 50# tarpon in the river.

Tarpon are active at sunrise and snook will be biting at night going into the full moon.
