Day one of Tarpon in the books

Posted 06-17-2011 at 09:20 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well I made it to the Keys with no problems. After a good nights sleep we headed out to one of our top flats for the day. Luckily we were first to arrive and able stake out right where the Tarpon always cross this flat to drop in to the creek.

When you catch and harvest / kill a king salmon there are a couple rules you must comply with right away to avoid problems. First thing before you forget is dry your hands and get out your license. Fill out the harvest information on the back and date it, then remove your fly from the leader and break down the rod. Breaking down the tackle isn't the law but it serves to remove all doubt whether you are done fishing. I think I mentioned this before but you may not fish in 'any' flowing water on the...

Another Day Another Chance

On another morning I found myself sitting in the boat at 4:10 AM watching another bottleneck that feed into another huge pool. The regulations prohibit fishing for salmon between 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM so I had elected to spend a couple hours looking for fish. It didn't take long before I spotted a wake and realized there were a bunch in the head of the pool. I cast for 2 hours and 55 minutes with the Skykomish that is tied to my line in this picture.
