Author Carl Hiassen Wins All-Tackle Tournament With Fly Rod

Carl Hiassen once again proved that flly rods — in the right hands — can be more effective than bait. Hiassen won the 40th annual Islamorada All-Tackle Bonefish Tournament in Islamorada this past week, fishing with guide Tim Klein. “Hiaasen, a popular author and ‘Miami Herald’ columnist, scored 17 releases and four weight fish, all caught on fly. He added one more bonefish release, caught on bait. The only other angler to have won the grand champion award on fly was Tom Richardson in 1989.” Carolina Bustamante on FishingWorld.com.
