Tarpon Fly Fishing Invitational May 21-23, 2023

This should be just awesome!

Our friends over at Beavertail Skiffs are excited to be the title sponsor sponsor for the 2023 Tarpon Fly Fishing Invitational May 21-23 at the awesome Tarpon Lodge On Pine Island, Florida (one of our favorite places for dinner!) as the headquarters for the event ๐Ÿ˜Ž

For those not familiar with this tournament, here is some video from last years event.

And all proceeds from the event are to support a great cause Captains For Clean Water which in many ways, has led the charge in bringing attention to the water quality issues facing South Florida.

You can read more about such by clicking Here


Planned for the event is some other cool stuff you may enjoy and some of them are:

  • Beavertail Skiffs also located in SWFL is going to have a Demo Day so you can inspect up close and pick out your next Beavertail Skiff, and discuss how to have it custom built just to suit you own personal needs and best use case! Here is a quick video on Beavertail Skiff that covers their product design and company philosophy
