Tarpon can be Frustrating

At the ramp

The tarpon hunting continues.  I’ve jumped two more. Sorry they no pictures; they were not on long enough.  One jump, two jumps, and they are gone. Damn. This is a one tough bite. Plenty of fish rolling around; yet only a precious few are willing to chew.  Frustrating.

So what has worked? Same fly as before. Ultra slow retrieves. And even that combo hasn’t worked well. Still the thrill of the hook up is so strong, its hard to quit brother . Just going to keep on, keeping on. Kings from a kayak. Addictive.
