Early Morning Jumper

Here's a small airborne tarpon from Matlacha Pass that hit a white deer-hair slider fly.  Once again, I wasn't ready with the camera since I had the push pole in my hands instead of the camera when this fish ate.  I did get a nice bit of spray in the air but the splash was out of focus and the shutter speed was too slow.  This tarpon spat the hook a fraction of a second earlier so that's why you don't see any line in the shot.  Lots of these fish out there but the breezy morning make them hard to find.  They'll be popping up everywhere in another month once the July heat settles in on us.
