Not all fishing guides are created equally. That’s obvious enough for anyone who’s ever had experiences with more than one or two guides. Great guides can be hard to come by, but they’re well worth seeking out.
One of those guides is David Mangum. When it comes to guides, he’s a great of the greats. What makes him so great is his methodical obsession for one single species: the monster tarpon. His passion for finding and catching the Silver King is so dedicated it’s almost insane.
In this video, titled ‘120 Days’ by Yeti Presents, Mangum talks about his love of guiding and his fellow guides discuss the allure of tarpon fishing and what makes Magnum such an absolute animal in his pursuit the Silver King during the best four months out of the year.
