LORDS OF THE FLY: MADNESS, OBSESSION AND THE HUNT FOR THE WORLD RECORD TARPON is a captivating glimpse into the wild world of competitive fishing. In the late 70s and early 80s, dozens of the world's best anglers converged on the small Florida town of Homosassa to land world record-breaking tarpons. Featuring some of the greatest fisherman of both now and then, Burke (an obsessive tarpon fly fisherman himself) chronicles the lives that were made and lost through those years, as well as examining both the beauty and dark side to the competitive fishing industry today.
