From the filmmaker:
“In November 1980, in my hometown, two fisherman caught something that they had never seen before.
This is probably the only existing proof about the accidental capture of tarpons in Europe. Another one was caught in 1973, in Tejo River (Lisbon) but no photo, only a replica in the Museum Vasco da Gama in Lisbon!
Now I leave my hometown with a friend to try to catch a large tarpon on the other side of the Atlantic.
This is the trailer of the documentary “The Lost Tarpon”, with José Rodrigues, Luís Mira and Leonel Henriques.”
