Tarpon Day 7= Final Day

Posted 06-26-2011 at 08:20 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well it finally came, the last day of 2011 Tarpon Trip. And we got off to a much better start than Day 5! The guide was on time. We got the jump on the competition for the flat we like best. About 10 minutes after we arrive on our spot 2 other boat came slowly cruising up and then motor for other waters. The wind was up and there was a fair amount of cloud cover but this was predicted to clear up before noon. Things were looking good!!

Due to our early start and arrival on site we had...

well I was going to head to the pond tonight, but it will have to wait. So i did some yard casting instead. Not sure if its the combo of the gear I have or just me but the line and loops wiggle about mid stroke.. otherwise my side arm casting at a faster pace does ok. I was able to set the fly down in the same place repeditivly, and no knots this time! yeah! weather permitting ill hit the pond tomarrow.

Tarpon Day 6 = Everglades

Posted 06-25-2011 at 10:48 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

In an attempt to right the wrong off to many libations the night before and pulling a no show on day5 our guide offered a run over to the Everglades. Hard to turn that trip down!! We have made this trip a few times over the years and if we had a trailer for Dads boat we would do it more often.

Guide arrived to pick us up very promptly this morning and we were off to Flamingo. We put in on the inside and headed out the channel to Coot Bay. Crossed Coot Bay to Tarpon Creek and into Whitewater...

Tarpon Day 5

Posted 06-23-2011 at 08:54 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

This day seemed doomed from the start. Since it has become so crowded out on the flats near Ocean Reef this year we decided to head out earlier than usual. We decided on the schedule change in order to get on our favorite flat. Over the last 7 yrs of this trip we have figured out the moves of the Tarpon during the tidal changes on this particular flat. Until this year we have been one of only two boats fishing the flats in this area. This year there have been many boats out there. We have been beaten...

Day one on the Water

Posted 06-22-2011 at 07:33 PM by mbphotos54

well first day on real water was a bust, the creek I had planed to fish today was swelling from alot of rain over the last few days, and throw in an average of 15-20mph winds that location was a bust, I did get to cast a bit there and did get in a few rollcasts. I decided to try a small pond here close by, and one side was out of the wind but it was the corner where the grass carp are rolling right now, so more casting practice was had. now that I think about it I dont know what I would have done...
