150 pound Tarpon

150 pound Tarpon

Here’s a picture some of you may have seen already, but many haven’t. Lately I’ve had a fixation wtih Tarpon so it seemed fitting to share this picture. I’m also very glad to hear that this fishing gal jumped in the water in order to cause as little trauma as possible to the fish. It’s a possible woman’s world record Tarpon. It was caught in Apalachicola, Florida on a 12# fly rod and 20 lb. test line using a purplse streamer. (I’m making a note of that!)
