The true moment of truth comes when the Tarpon is played by the side of the skiff and the angler is begging for a photo with the fish. Nowadays, the best way to photo a Tarpon is to keep the fish in the water in order to save the fish from trauma and to preserve the life expectancy of these great fish.

I have been guilty of mishandling the Silver King in the past, however I have now seen the light and this photo, reflection and all, is a tribute to the epiphany that I have had in striving to preserve the species.

And so if you want to fish with me and get that Tarpon hero photo by swimming with the Tarpon, then that is great. I look forward to fishing with you too and taking pictures of the fish for you and even a few with you and the fish like this one here...

This giant was subdued after nearly a hour and swam away after a brief period of revival.

To catch and release one like this, call or email Capt. Dexter Simmons, 305-745-3304, captdexter@gmail.com, or visit my website: www.keywestflyfishing.comMike Dinner has been fly fishing with Capt. Dexter Simmons for 16 years. He is an excellent fly caster and always manages to take advantage of the Silver King whenever he is fishing in the Keys during May or June. Mike usually puts on a "clinic" casting to cruising Tarpon on the flats.
Here is Mike hooked up early in the day.
There are few anglers who fish the Keys regularly for Tarpon who can match Michael's casting skills. Here is Mike with a Tarpon to the boat.
Mike fishes for 6 or 7 days each May or June. He is a dedicated angler who loves to tie Tarpon fly patterns and prepare leaders in advance of his annual sojourn to Key West to fish with Capt. Dexter Simmons of Key West Fly Fishing.
Mr. Tarpon up close and personal...
Capt. Dexter is happy to note that there are other serious anglers who fish annually with him for Tarpon in the Keys. Anyone who is serious about catching Tarpon on Fly is encouraged to call Capt. Dexter to talk with him about the possibility of fly fishing the Key West flats. This Tarpon season is still going on and there are a few open dates in the last week of June to take advantage of.
