Fly fishing for tarpon in Cuba! One of the ultimate destinations and species is the focus of SABALO — a new film coming to the Fly Fishing Film Tour.
From the Fly Fishing Film Tour:
“There are several reasons why the Austrian fisherman Helmut Zaderer comes back to Cuba every year. He has been fishing in salt water for many years in the best places in the world but Jardines de la Reina – a protected marine park without commercial fisheries at the Cuban Caribbean East Coast – is one of his favorite places to fish. There are few spots like this anymore – no boats, ships and tourists – untouched nature, healthy corals and lots of fish instead.
In May 2022 Helmut went there with his videographer Vaidas Uselis especially for creating this unique film about Tarpon fishing. In Jardines de la Reina there are usually big schools of these fascinating upto 100 pound powerful fish on the flats. In SABALO – that’s how the Cubans call the Tarpons – you’ll see how fascinating flyfishing in this great area can be.”
