Took a family vacation to Aruba. We had a great time!
Had scheduled a 1/2 day guided flyfishing trip with Laurenz Van Mook of
I had not ever caught a tarpon, so was hoping to get one added to my flyrod list. I caught one, lost one, and missed a couple more bites. We looked for bonefish, only saw a couple, and the only cast I made to one landed too close, resulting in the fish getting spooked. I also had a Bar Jack on, but lost it...and then caught a small Blue Runner. The Tarpon and Blue Runner were flyrod fish #82 and #83 for 2023!
|Blue Runner. This is a pic I grabbed off the web...my fish was smaller (but similar markings) ...and flipped out of the guide's hand back into the water while we were trying to take a picture.
