Some people have all the luck. Or maybe it’s not luck. I don’t know. (Sigh.)

All I know is that I have spent a total of four days standing on the bow of a flats skiff in the Florida Keys and have yet to cast to a full-size tarpon. Kara Armano, an angler from Colorado, caught one in her first hour on the water with Cap. Bruce Chard. Grrr. Watch below as Kara first gets a lesson in presentation and then puts her new skills to work to land a gorgeous silver king.
