Fly Fishing in tropical saltwater is getting more and more popular! And on the top of many fly fisher's bucketlist is the Tarpon. No surprise, cause this predator can grow big and heavy and is a very strong fighter. But if you want to fish for Megalops, you better be prepared correctly!

This is why Alexander Keus is in this video presenting basic information and many tips & tricks for catching Tarpon.
