Andy Mill Wins Hawley Tarpon Tournament

June 15, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

While wife Chris Evert cruised the Greek Isles with the elder Bushes, Andy Mill added the Hawley Invitational Tarpon Tournament to his list of impressive fly fishing tournament wins. It was the first time Mill has one the Hawley — which, by the way, was the first big tarpon fly tournament to promote release fishing — even though he has won both the Gold Cup and Golden Fly 5 times each. As has happened in the past, Mill and guide Paul Tejera staged a come-from-behind win on the last day. “Mill said he was out of practice using 12-pound tippet and wasn’t ‘sticking them hard enough’ when the Megalops atlanticus took the fly. ‘They all just flopped off the hook,’ he said.” John Geiger on Keynoter.com.
