POONFECTA – Micro Tarpon Fly Fishing Tournament In Tampa Bay

If you’re looking for a good time with great food, cold beers and Tarpon then this is an event you need to check out. I fished the Poon Fecta last year and had a blast! It’s a fun tournament with a bunch of guys that like to catch baby tarpon on fly, drink beer and get together for an awesome weekend. For more information and details see below.
