Mutton Snapper On Fly From Key West

My buddy Capt. Mike Bartlett sent me this shot yesterday.  He was tarpon fishing with our good friend Wild Bill Heindl when they scored this beautiful mutton snapper on the flats.  According to Mike this one came out of a small school in three feet of water and attacked the fly.  These snapper are a rare but very hard fighting catch in shallow water.  They also taste as good as they look.  Way to go, Mike.
