Kids Under 14 On Your Fly Fishing For Tarpon Charter
Since everyone will be casting a 10wt fly rod, it has been our experience that kids under 14 don’t have the upper body strength to cast for very long, or to fight a big strong fish. However we realize that every child is different, especially at 14. Please call us if you have kids under 14 that you feel have the fly fishing skills and upper body strength to fish effectively.
