Baby Poon on Glass - about the most fun you can have with your pants on.

December 09, 2013 1 min read

These pics were sent in by our buddy Capt. Greg Peterson from Headshot Charters. Greg runs a hot guiding operation out of Tampa, Florida.

Greg contacted us a while back to get hold of some big glass to chase baby Tarpon, Snook and Redfish in the bay. The first blank we fired over was our 990 blank (pictured), which he built up himself  -  Since then he's taken delivery of a couple more Epics. He reckons baby Poon on glass are about the most fun you can have with your pants on.
Glass is most definitely not dead.
Fish on!

Last year at one of our regular "How do we make these better" chats (we dont have any meetings around here) - Trev suggested we take a closer look at the new Fuji Torzite stripping guides - I have to admit to being a little sceptical, to date we'd been using a very good titanium stripping guide produced by Alps. They're top notch.....
