Has anyone seen the new remastered DVD Tarpon
?"I have not but the reviews are encouraging and I am looking forward to it. What got my attention was knowing that Thomas McGuane, a superb writer, is notably quoted in the film. I recently became familiar with his work from Terry Gibson,Shallow Water Angler Editor, and one of my favorite angling companions. After a long day poling the flats of south FL, while enjoying venison quiche and grilled duck, the conversation turned to good reads.Terry has never missed before on recommendations(last one was "No Country For Old Men") so I knew "Ninety-two in the Shade" by McGuane was going to be good. As a flats guide and one who spends as much time as possible in the referred waters, it was quite enjoyable. It is very vivid and descriptive, particularly that permit fight and run into the mangroves.be sure to check out the film and this book.
