Jack Attack At Matlacha

Here's a couple of shots from late yesterday afternoon at the Matlacha Pass drawbridge.  We were heading out to the Indian Fields to look for tailing redfish when a big school of jacks blew up right in front of us.  My buddy Joe Mahler jumped right up on the bow and landed this golden beauty with his 8-weight and a popper.  It always amazes me how hard a two pound fish like this can fight on a light fly rod.  I could catch these guys all day long.
