boychick, congrats on your 1st tarpon. Shame about the shark but it happens. I have been tarpon fishing for a long time. 36 yrs. It is addictive. I still remember my first on fly. I am sure you will as well.

Good job,

GenCon

GenCon,

You are correct. The casting was a litttle tricky at first, I had never held a 12 wt before, but once I went tight all the frustration melted away. It was an awesome experience, one I'll never forget. Hooking a 5 foot, 70-80 lb fish is unforgetable, especially when the fish jumped! I've already been daydreaming of the next tarpon trip.

That is a nice picture. That is ashame what happened but still you had a awesome fight I am sure. I have yet to catch a Tarpon on a fly but have caught a few on spinning gear. I will never forget my largest was around 60 pds and I can still clearly remember it coming out of the water about 5 X. I will be on the beaches of Sanibel Island with my fly rod next week trying to make a few more memories..

Pafisherman,

You're absolutly right, the tarpon experience is unforgetable. I'm already trying to figure out when my next tarpon trip will be. Enjoy your trip to Sanibel Island.
