Tarpon Video Shorts from Spanish Fly Theater

Received permission from the folks at "Spanish Fly" to post the links to these two short videos.

Check out this short of Capt. Wejebe sitting on the beach watching tarpon roll while he eats a sandwich! http://www.spanishflytv.com/theater/swt-tortugas-tarpon.php The close up of how a tarpon eats is classic. Where I live and fish for tarpon I am often blind casting or fishing deep, and rarely get to see the fish take the bait/lure/fly. It's nice to have a snapshot in my mind of what the take looks like.

The video below accurately depicts everything about baby tarpon fishing that is so rewarding. One could say it's most like treasure hunting. http://www.spanishflytv.com/theater/vdm-san-felipe-tarpon.php
After so many seasons, "Spanish Fly" on ESPN2 is still one of the best fishing shows on television. Thank you to Capt. Wejebe and his production staff for all the hard work traveling, filming and putting together such quality entertainment.

EPIPHANY- this little tarpon (below) that we caught last year measured TL (Total length) 12 inches. That would make the fish approximately one year old. Given that tarpon are long lived fish and the fact that I am 47 years old means that it has the capacity to outlive me!
