David Mangum of Shallow Water Expeditions has been a fixture on this blog for years–both for his guiding and his video work. Now Mangum is the subject of a new film from Felt Soul Media that explores his passion for tarpon.

Fun fact: That’s our colleague Charley Perkins on the bow of David’s boat in the drone shot of an angler casting to a string of approaching tarpon.
If you need more, here’s just a taste of Mangum’s previous blog appearances:

Hands down the best piece of fly fishing cinematography that I have ever seen. Hats off to Felt Soul.
