Striped Marlin on the fly!

Fly fishing enthusiast and new neighbor, Russ Elrod went offshore with us out of Marina Flamingo planning for conventional fishing tackle and hooking his own since the billfish bite has been a little slow. But he brought along his fly rod, never having caught a billfish on the fly, just in case… He got a beautiful bite and successfully released his first striped marlin on the fly! Russ also caught dorado and tuna on the fly rod this trip. Well done!
