Early Morning Jumper

I got this shot when the light was still low and just after the tarpon spit the hook.  If I wasn't fumbling to drop my push pole and grab the Nikon this could have been a great shot just a quarter second earlier when the fish was three feet higher in the air. This is also an example of why you should take your camera off its Auto setting.  A higher shutter speed would have captured the spray in the air even better while reducing the blur and glare on the water's surface.  Sometimes it's really tough to be both the guide and photographer at the same time.
