Andy Mill and his son Nicky have signed on to help lead the 2015 Belize Tarpon Tagging Expedition. This coming August 15th-22, El Pescador Lodge will play host to the 3rd Annual Expedition. An effort of the Fieldworkers Club and supporting research of the University of Miami’s Tarpon and Bonefish Research Center. The expedition provides anglers with an opportunity to actually help advance tarpon research while learning from the sport’s finest, all while enjoying world class fishing in Belize.
Not just a fishing trip, an expedition. Led by Adam Marton and famed tarpon angler (the man who wrote the book on tarpon fishing with a fly rod), Andy Mill. The expedition will provide a few lucky anglers an exciting opportunity for learning. This is a chance to drill down and focus on learning the tactics behind becoming a highly skilled tarpon fly angler. Intended to pole vault your knowledge and build the foundation for a lifetime of making the fish eat. This will be an on the water opportunity to learn how to read the fish, present the fly, feed the fish, set the hook and fight the beast and all from Andy Mill.
Andy Mill’s success is profound, awarded Olympic downhill ski racer, network TV broadcaster and tournament fly angler. Winning more invitational fly tournaments than anyone. Author of the award winning book “A Passion for Tarpon” (Wild River Press) he has become one of our sports leading authorities. He has joined on to share what he knows with this group of passionate tarpon anglers.
“Most fly rodders who seriously fish for giant tarpon regard Andy Mill as the best andhis record is unequaled. He’s also a modest unassuming guy. Andy will be co-hosting the Tarpon Tagging Expedition this year to Belize. This is a great opportunity to spend time with Andy who’s always willing share his expertise and to assist in a worthwhile project.”
The success of the 2015 expedition depends on several engaged anglers who want to do everything they can to advance tarpon research while fishing, learning and having a ton of fun in Belize. It’s not an easy task to hook, land and tag a 100-pound plus tarpon and we could sure use some good help.
