Airborne Tarpon

I don't post a lot of tarpon pictures since we jump far more fish than we actually land and I rarely have a camera in my hands during the fight.  I got lucky with this tarpon, a midsize guy that ate a fly in the flat calm afternoon water in Charlotte Harbor.  The light was harsh so it isn't a great shot but not bad for having a Nikon in one hand and a push pole in the other.  This fish also spat the hook about two seconds later.
