From the filmmakers:

“The first of the modern fishing films, Tarpon was shot in the wild panorama of the 1970’s Key West. As they fly fish in the aquatic wilderness of the Florida Keys, anglers and authors capture the essence of the sport in words and dramatic film footage. Colorful scenes of Key West from another era – with treasure hunters, smugglers, hippies and eccentrics – are background to stunning cinematography and tarpon fishing at its finest.”
