O Tarpon Perdido

In November 1980, two fisherman caught something that they had never seen before.  A few photos are probably the only existing proof of the accidental capture of tarpon in Europe. Another one was caught in 1973, in Tejo River (Lisbon) but no photos exist, only a replica in the Museum Vasco da Gama in Lisbon.  Filmmaker Jose' Rodrigues leaves his hometown with a friend to try and catch a large tarpon on the other side of the Atlantic.  This is the trailer of the documentary "The Lost Tarpon."
