The smile of shared experience. Catching a 139 pounder is definitely an experience! Well done Scott Green and Captain Tommy Locke...the winners of the 2021 Golden Fly Largest Tarpon Billy Pate Memorial honors.

We’ll keep them safe while you’re keeping yourself safe. Looking forward to getting down to business on the other side of this🤘🏼 @jmartinez_art #savetheseason #tarpon #tarpononfly #coronapoon #islamorada #islamoradatimes #flkeys #floridakeys #fkfga ...

The 2019 #loopgoldenfly saw some of the best weather in recent memory. A record 97 fish were caught! @ed_young and @keysbackwaters did their fair share of the damage...catching 5 fish on day three for a total of 9, earning them Most Releases this year!! @loop_tackle

For the second year in a row, Glenn Flutie and @firecaptain13 catch the largest tarpon in the #loopgoldenfly and receive stunning new trophies from our good friends at @kingsailfishmounts commemorating the memory of the great Billy Pate.
142lbs seems to be the magic number for this great team🙌
