Brandon and Phyllis from Malaysia were in Daytona Beach for a conference and decided to book a guided fishing trip with me in their spare time. Brandon wanted to catch a Tarpon and try his hand at saltwater fly fishing in the Tomoka River. We set out at 6 and made our way up the scenic Tomoka River. It didn’t take long for the Tarpon to start rolling all around us and before we knew it, it was fish on. Brandon landed the first Tarpon he hooked which doesn’t always happen. We snapped a quick pic and safely released it.
We did this multiple times and decided to try for Redfish as well. After landing a fat 22″ red we started heading in.
We made one more pit stop to pick a fight with a Jack Crevalle and called it a day.
