Tarpon very slow on Sunday

This is a late report, but I have been busy. After helping Ward fix his internet connection Sunday afternoon we decided to go for a quick fish locally for some sunset Tarpon. What we thought would be a good session (hot stormy afternoon) turned out to be pretty quiet. First pond hardly had a ripple on the surface. A couple of other guys were fishing there, and they didn't see to be doing much better. One of the guys missed a couple of hookups on fly, but that was about it.

The second pond we tried had a lot of surface action from small fish in the 6-12in range. But we couldn't manage even a strike. The most exciting thing for the evening was the dance I had with a small Brown Snake! Yep, that's right, I literally danced with a snake. He appeared suddenly between my legs, and the best I could do was dance around him to stop him 'tagging' me! Very lucky indeed.
