Dalu and Collins Win Golden Fly Tarpon Tournament

Last night we got word that David Dalu, guided by Captain Scott Collins, won the annual three-day Golden Fly Tarpon Tournament in the Florida Keys yesterday. This follows their win in the 5-day Don Hawley Tarpon Tournament last June, when Dalu was the first first-time angler to win the event. We’ll post more results as we get them.
