Hardy testing/tarpon fishing

The Hardy crew was in today, and I had the chance to look at the new Fortuna reels (contrary to popular belief, these reels are not only for tuna fishing….) Tomorrow I will have the opportunity to fish the new 1-piece Sintrix Proaxis rods for tarpon with Doug Kilpatrick and Fitz Coker. Additionally, I begged one of the reels (which are not slated for delivery untiL June 2011) off them, and should have a report tomorrow.
A full report to follow tomorrow, but the tarpon are here and on the chew. Congratulations to Morgan Ueberoth on hooking his first tarpon on fly last night–don’t worry, next time you’ll get one in the air!
