Wed, Aug 8th, at 7:00 p.m.
Meeting in person at Manuel’s Tavern.
Topic: Greg will give a talk on the tournament tarpon fishing scene.
Greg’s presentation will focus on fly fishing for Tarpon and what it is like to fish one of the “Big 3”
Tarpon tournaments in the Florida Keys. Greg will discuss gaining the experience to compete, getting an
invitation to a tournament, equipment, the costs involved, and how tournament fishing is different than
your average day on the water in the Florida Keys.
Bio: Greg is a native of Georgia, and he started traveling to the Panhandle and the Florida Keys to fish for
Tarpon in 2004. There are no other species that has fueled his passion quite like the large Tarpon. He has
fished the Don Hawley Invitational Tarpon Tournament 3 times since 2019. His best finish was a tie for
9th Place out of 24 anglers in 2019 with the High Point total for Day 3. Greg is also an avid fly caster and
became a Certified Casting Instructor through Fly Fisher’s International in 2017.
