BIG OR SMALLER, THEY'LL MAKE YA HOLLER

Amazingly tough
they rob your pockets
But stalking you must 
burning eye sockets

Looking nonstop 
dawn until blind
Gotta keep focus
don't lose your mind

Finally a shot
target so fleeting
She swam right by
without even eating

Then finally the one
ate with a thump
Rod loaded up
end loop went bump

Such a fun tussle 
zig-zagging sizzle
These fancy jacks
plate-shaped missiles

Ride to the dock
Not at all smooth
But smile on faces
we're back in the groove

YES!

A lovely glowing sunrise greeted us as we blasted towards the promised land and it wasn't long before we spied a gang of beautiful chrome-sided tarpon rolling in the morning light. About ten minutes in a slight "tick" and serious strip set, and we screamed as a parade of bathtub-sized boils exploded across the surface. Splitting the gathering mats of golden sea grass, the Torque humming my favorite wake up alarm, the 10wt H2 bowing with her every thundering leap. This super hot forty pounder eventually succumbed and we could see that the fly was deep, and as luck would have it, she soon chewed thru a few feet below the boat. YES! With the sun at a helpful azimuth, we began our search for permit and it would take the better a part of the day before that first shot came calling.....and I clanked it, misjudging it pace and overshooting it by a leader length. Never ever a pleasant sight watching one blast for the coral edge. A football field's length down the same edge and here comes a lead singer that spooks but her back up band is ready to play. One strip and all I can say is, "SHE ATE!" A real hottie, I watched as she smoked across the grassy flat, the new H3 9wt bucking and Galvan Grip 8 humming with pleasure. Three crazy darting runs later we had finally had her. If you heard a loud "YES!" that was us! πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΏπŸŒ§πŸŒ΄πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸŒŠπŸ¦€πŸ¦ŽπŸΊπŸ˜†

STARTER KIT
.
A pleasant prop flight over a calm coastal zone and soon enough I was knocking back ice-cold Belikens and chowing on seared shrimp with a lovely pineapple habanero glaze next to coconut rice. YUM! A calm start this morning, soon found us headed out of the channel and into a stiff offshore wind, and as expected it played havoc with our tides, effectively holding water off the prime flats. But we had sun and within minutes, our one and only permit shot of the day swam over my presentation and kept on going ha-ha. Kept poling and came into a beautiful bay full of happy Merkin-grabbing bones and soon the skunk disappeared. Meandering slowly thru a narrow mangrove channel, we watched as a very large permit rolled on a small dark crab clinging to a floating leaf. WOW! Post-lunch found serious clouds blackening our zone and so with a day filled with laughs and plenty of scrappy bonefish, all while surrounded by a pristine environment, we sent the skiff skipping for home. Going another direction tomorrow. Wish us luck.πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΏπŸŒ§πŸŒ΄πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸŒŠπŸ¦€πŸ¦ŽπŸΊπŸ˜†

Hunter got it done again, made a great 400 yard shot , pretty impressive considering his right eye was swollen shut 2 days ago from a baseball.  #hunt az #sundownerguideservice #youthhunt #pighunting
I feel very fortunate to have been with my brother when he punched his once in a lifetime sheep tag.  Amazing job on the pics @bitter24  #sundownerguideservice #hunt az #sheephunting #desertbighornsheep #desertbighorn #outdoorsmans
Scouting video from the day we found Rayne's ram,  always a shame to see a big old ram missing his horn.  #sundownerguideservice #adbss #hunt az #desertbighorn #sheephunting

Congratulations to Rayne on his beautiful ram.  Lots of hard work paid off on this backpack hunt.  #sundownerguideservice #adbss #desertbighorn #sheephunting
Just a little mass reference on lee's buck.  Hard work paid off on this one.  #hunt az #massntrash #couesdeer #sundownerguideservice

Following a quick fray-removing retie, the panga crept back into position and then some knucklehead fires a wayward cast INTO the mangroves and the fly is now hung SOLID. At Bruce's direction, I grab my back up rod and flick a cast with maybe ten feet of line out and get absolutely CRUSHED by a another larger tarpon!  INSANE! That fish ended up being the largest of the day and was a wonderful test of the Orvis H2 ten weight and Galvan Grip's stopping and pulling power.πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

.....and if your timing was right you got hammered within seconds of your fly hitting the water. Such great species, tarpon are SO much fun, and definitely have a way of making one's day a whole lot better.......πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄ . . #socalflatsfishing  #galvanflyreels  #galvanforlife  #galvantorque  #galvangrip  #orvisflyfishing  #orvisflyrods  #helios3  #helios2  #smithoptics  #flatsgrandslam  #bonefishonthefly  #permitonthefly  #tarpononthefly  #belizeflyfishing  #sundownerguideservice  #sundownerlodge 
........a  tasty lunchtime refueling combined with a hopeful normalizing wind shift, and we were soon skipping towards a lush palm-covered section that upon arrival, showed tremendous signs of life. The four-stroke coming to rest, we glided then poled into position as we observed, pods of rolling tarpon and foaming schools of jack crevalle as they fed aggressively on tiny baitfish.......πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

AWESOMENESS

Day one flat light 
a few bones and jacks
We threw at some tailers
those permit were lax

Different plan today 
we ran for the border
The run was so smooth
but surely not shorter

In the distance Honduras
and Guatemala too
A quick right turn
as the sky went blue
.
And there they were 
rolling in a lake
fun-size tarpon
a bunch lipped by Blake

Pushing permit too
would follow and tip
But nothing you'd feel 
behind a long strip

Tomorrow might be different 
regardless so fun
Pray for northeast 
and plenty of sun
