[Cat. 71.] 83-0489 p. –Tarpon fishing in 1906 at Boca Grande, Florida with Edward vom Hofe and other notables; Aflalo caught 17 tarpon in 11 days. He used a vom Hofe reel which he first thought was too expensive, but after using it, would gladly pay twice the price. He also thought that tarpon not taken to a taxidermist should be released alive, a very novel idea for the time. He was appalled at the fish wasted. One of his numerous photos is captioned: “Slayers and Slain” and shows two sports with 10 dead tarpon. His comments on his trip from England to New York by boat, then by train to Florida, and his return trip by way of Cuba and Jamaica are pithy and reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling.
