Book Review: Lords of the Fly by Monte Burke

I know I am a little late reading this book as it was published in September 2020, but Lords of the Fly was worth the wait.  Full of wild stories involving legends of our sport and the early days of fly fishing for tarpon. Loved hearing about flats boat designs, the beginnings of Tibor and Abel reel companies, modern-day guides and the obsession that burns in IGFA record hunters.  I really enjoy reading history books and Burke conveys the history of Tarpon fishing brilliantly.  He covers the tarpon’s place in history as I had never heard, including art and Biblical lore.  Coming fresh off my first trip to the Keys chasing these prehistoric giants last June, I could literally not put this book down.  Hope you enjoy it too.
