SIMMS’ SCOTT HARKINS TALKS TRAVEL WITH TROUTS FLY FISHING
Simms sales rep Scott Harkins recently logged some hours in the Seychelles at the same time Yellow Dog’s Jim Klug and Camille Egdorf were there shooting for a new Confluence Films project.
Harkins talked with Denver’s Trouts Fly Fishing about the trip (read the full interview here). In the interview, he fondly recounted the feeling of casting to his first Giant Trevally:
“You can’t describe how fast these fish move and you need to begin your cast way earlier thank you think or they’re on you. When a GT decides to eat your fly, you can’t strip fast enough. Seriously, their closing speed is incredible!”
When asked how he felt after landing his first GT, Harkins expounded: “The Seychelles is to GTs what the Florida Keys is to permit. The guides, mostly South African, like bonefish, bumpies, and permit, but they love their GTs. It’s their passion and it’s difficult not to get caught up in the whole thing! It’s quite amazing to look at one of these creatures close up.”
