We’ve just received this note from our friend Kent Davenport:
I fished with Tom Evans for 3 weeks and on May 10 we were about 100 feet apart on a sandy flat at Homosassa when we saw a large fish and two smaller fish approach. I cast to the big fish and it followed the fly to the boat and then turned away. Tom was talking on the phone and his guide Al said “Here they come 80 feet” Tom put his phone away as Al was going nuts. He picked up the rod and made a 30 foot cast and the big one was on.
An hour and a half later, we have a new Tarpon fly rod record for 12 lb test 196 lbs. 75 inches long and 45 inches in girth.
Give us a call at 800-552-2729 if you’re interested in fishing the Florida Keys!
