"We had a great trip. Reserve weeks for us next May and October. We were coming to the end of one of the most rewarding fishing experiences we ever had. The sheer number of fish hooked (69), landed only 17, the raw power on the end of your fly rod, the glint in a guides eye when he knew he did well. All of this and more is what we experienced on a Tarpon trip of a lifetime. I also have to mention we caught about thirty Yellow Wing Jacks, the biggest being 85cm"
