There are some stories that are just whispers, or rumor, or gossip. These are the stories you can’t read about on some fly shop website from neophyte wannabees hoping to “be somebody” in the world of fly fishing. There are posers and fakers and then there is the real thing. This is the real thing. Caught by a real fly angler…a guy I know. A friend of mine. This tarpon will never see 200 pounds again. It was a world record, never entered…released alive near Key West. A massive, gargantuan fish of a lifetime.

And nobody knows about it
