Pompano On Fly


Local angler Jim Drysdale landed this small pompano while casting to baby tarpon with me yesterday.  The fish itself isn't too impressive but it was caught on his first cast using an Avalon Crab fly.  This is a great new pattern developed for Cuban permit it will obviously be highly effective on their close cousin the pompano.  I've been tying up a lot of these for myself lately and you can also purchase a few locally at Florida Paddlesports.
