SILVER KING

SILVER KING

At some point in your angling evolution you have to cross paths with the silver king.  "Apte..ly" named they are the king of the shallow flats.  The site of them cruising at you in 6 ft of water will make you tremble.  Having one turn and follow your fly will send you pulse skyrocketing.  Jumping one and have them spit the fly will have you cursing everyone and everything.  And to catch one...well, you will have to ask those that have done it.

A debt of gratitude to JT Van Zandt  and Captain David Mangum for sharing this photo and video.
