|Frank's tarpon on the fly|
I had the opportunity to show Frank the Florida fishery, a place he has been wanting to fish for a long time. We wasted no time once we arrived at our hotel and set up our gears, I was fishing a 6wt and he was fishing a 7wt. Our target species for that afternoon were peacock bass and other exotics in the area. We had a good time fishing for them and I was able to put Frank onto his first peacock bass. He was surprised of how beautiful they look in person as well as their strength. Through out the week, we fished for them and by the end of the trip we landed over 50 peacock bass between both of us.
What a great fishing trip all around and to share it with a great friend. To view more photos of this trip, click on the Florida Fishing Gallery.
