    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.

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.
