Kathy and I did a 10-day dive and fish package at the Southern Cross Club in 2005. Besides the fantastic diving, we caught a few bonefish, baby tarpon in the “Tarpon Lake” and other assorted fish. In my eagerness to set the hook, I pulled my fly out of the mouth of a large tarpon that was a member of a group that hung around the docks in the morning. Better not to traumatize one of the pet tarpon, anyway. Frigate birds hovered over our heads as we played small reef fish. Little Cayman is a very pleasant small island.
