    Made by King Sailfish Mounts of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this tarpon casting is a replica of the world-record catch brought in by James (Jim) Holland Jr. on May 11, 2000. The fish weighed 202 lbs, 8 oz., and was the first 200-pound tarpon officially recorded as being caught on a fly. During the more than two-hour battle, the tarpon pulled the boat Jim, his father, and guide Steve Kilpatrick were in nearly four miles; it took two people to hoist it onboard.

Credit: Lauren Dunston Place: st george sound Fish: tarpon Weight: 130lbs Caught By: Capt Tucker Strickland My buddy called me one day and said he wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Something about tricking a 150 lb prehistoric fish into eating a hand crafted fly intrigued him. I penciled him into my book when I had a free afternoon and the picture tells the rest. We had four tarpon to the boat in four hours and he was hooked.

Fly fishing for tarpon is one of the biggest challenges in fly fishing. The fish are huge, they jump up to 6 feet in the air, and their mouths are solid bone.
