Tarpon

Mocked By BVI Tarpon

If you’ve ever fished for tarpon, you know just how challenging it can be. I spent several months in the BVI chasing these prehistoric beasts and I know as little today as I did the first day I fished them. I managed to catch my fair share of fish, but there were days when there were 50+ tarpon feeding within casting range, and no mater what I tried, I could not get one to bite. Even live bait failed to produce fish!

Matt from This River Is Wild managed to get some awesome footage the other day, showing just how tough it is to convince a tarpon to bite.

I Love the BVI

If you followed this site for any amount of time you’ve probably seen me write about the British Virgin Islands. I was born on the main island of the BVI, called Tortola, and it one of my favorite places to fish. Its been a few years since I’ve been back and every winter it kills me that I’m shoveling snow while other people are capitalizing on the great fishing to be had. Luckily there are a couple of people documenting their BVI fishing experiences as I did. So if you are looking for some awesome tropical fishing photos to keep you warm this winter, check out This River Is Wild. An make sure you read back a few pages, there is a ton of great reading! One of the authors, Matt, has managed to do what most visitors fail to do, consistently catch tarpon on the fly!

Here are a few of his catches from the BVI!
