10-year-Old Girl Hooks Huge Tarpon on the Fly

For anyone to hook a tarpon on the fly is an accomplishment. 

Far up the Sibun River, near Belize City, a 10-year-old girl hooked into a giant tarpon on the fly. Not to ruin the video you are about to watch, but she didn’t get it in.

That’s not the story though. What makes this video so incredible to watch is the girl’s father react to the battle, coupled with the girl’s response, after the fish got off the hook.

Hold up. A 10-year-old girl was fishing for tarpon on the fly? Yep. See for yourself.


Pretty incredible right? Too bad she didn’t get it in, but just fishing with her father is probably what she is going to remember most anyway.

Way to go, dad. Congrats on being a great father.
