Video: The Leaping Tarpon of Marathon Key


Written by: Phil Monahan


Catching a tarpon in the Florida Keys is still an unfulfilled Bucket List item for me, and videos such as this one only fuel my desire. My friend Marshall Cutchin instilled in me the notion that Keys tarpon are different animals, so I want to catch my first tarpon there. This video from Trygg Danforth features one of the coolest tarpon shots ever, capturing a leap from its starting point underwater.

    awesome. I used to live down there and was invited out to fish for them with friends, back then I didn’t fly fish and really had no idea what a tarpan was. now I live 1500 miles away and would love an opportunity to cast to one
