The Poor Boys Tarpon Fly Tournament was started 40 years ago by the local fishing guides. After all of the major tarpon fly tournaments in May and June, the guides wanted a chance to compete against each other. They started the Poor Boys' with a modest entry fee to make the tournament accessible to anyone who wanted to prove their skill and compete. The tournament has kept in line with this over the years. This is a fun event and we want everyone to have the chance to compete.
