Photography: Yucatan Baby Tarpon

Tarpon are a creature of beauty... whether they are 5 pounds or 100 pounds, they each have an aura and glow about them that no other fish has. Their flanks are bright as a mint silver dollar, while, at the same time, the scales throw hues of purple, olive, blue, and even pink. And lucky for us, beneath this beauty is a brute that gives anglers one of the best fights on a fly rod... Fish On!
