Colorful scenes of Key West from another era - with treasure hunters, smugglers, hippies & eccentrics - are background to stunning cinematography & tarpon fishing at its finest. The first of the modern fishing films, Tarpon was shot in the wild panorama of the 1970's Key West. As they fly fish in the aquatic wilderness of the Florida Keys, anglers & authors capture the essence of the sport in words & dramatic film footage. Original music by Jimmy Buffet. With appearance by authors Richard Brautigan, Thomas McGuane & Jim Harrison. 53 min.
