Truly Classic Video: Casting for Tarpon with a Glass Fly Rod

I recently ran across this marvelous piece of archival film from the International Game Fish Association, which shows casting champion Bill True and guide Jim Brewer chasing tarpon in the Florida Keys sometime in the 1960s(?). It’s a great piece of history, and it will give you a sense of how much easier we have it now, when compared to the sport’s pioneers. And you gotta love the ethic behind, “This fish is so beautiful, we’ll let it go.”
