A Few More Tarpon
There are still some bigger fish around but these small mid-summer tarpon are my favorites. Martin Walls from Oklahoma spent his birthday hooking a few earlier this week near Little Pine Island. These guys are usually eager to hit a fly and my go-to pattern lately has been a #2 Schminnow with bead chain eyes to get them further down in the water. They're easy to tie and even easier to cast with light rods.
