The summer got hot anyway!

I was complaining about the rainy and cold weather in Denmark. I escaped from it... to Mexico...

In Mexico it was hot and wet. Hot every day, very rainy some days. Not that it was a problem: we avoided the worst heat by fishing in the morning, and the rain usually only came in the afternoon after we had returned.

And yes, I fished. Trying for tarpon again for the second time in my life, and again without catching the big one. My personal record was a 10 lbs. fish - a baby tarpon - and the record on the trip was about 50 lbs., which was quite far from the 100 lbs. specimens we had imagined and heard of.

Well, I had fun, and there will of course be a story on GFF soon. Until then you can enjoy the picture to the right here.

And need I mention that now that I'm back at my desk, it's sizzling hot and humid in Denmark?

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
