Saltwater Fly Fishing is all about the hunt!
You’re on the water at first light, hunting for tarpon blasting through schools of baitfish, or moving in small pods, rolling their silver backs through the water’s surface. The excitement builds when your guide raises the motor and begins poling the skiff towards the fish, getting you into position for the cast. You’re up on the deck, line stripped off your reel, and the tarpon are showering baitfish into the air.
Silently, the skiff glides within range and you drop your streamer on the edge of the feeding frenzy. A couple quick pulls on your line and it comes tight. You react by pulling hard on the line to set the hook, swinging your rod down and to the side, and three feet of twisting silver rockets out of the slick water and into the air. You’ve anticipated this moment for months, traveled thousand miles, and it all compressed down to the magic of jumping tarpon in the predawn light.
Saltwater fly fishing is about the hunt, and it happens in some of the most beautiful and tropical locations on the planet.
