Tarpon Springs, Florida
From May through July come enjoy crystal clear white sand flats, strings of giant migrating Tarpon and you on the bow with a fly rod in hand. Few things in the world of sport fishing compare to pursuing a Tarpon with a fly rod. They’re big, powerful, acrobatic, ancient fish and will burn a lasting image into your mind that will leave you with an unexplainable emotion that can’t be put into words. Simply put, time would be wasted to find a fish in comparison to a tarpon and all that it encompasses. The west coast of Florida is a major migration path and winters a large number of fish due to our bays and river ways along the coast. In fact several world records have been caught and broken just a short boat ride from where we fish. This is the pinnacle in Salt Water Fly Fishing. A lot of emphasis will be put on the pursuit of the fish but more importantly Tommy will give you years and years of instruction in a very short period of time. Tommy's goal as a guide is to develop his anglers into better all around fisherman on and off his boat.
