Few photographers bring to the lens a better eye and more skill than Pat Ford. The Miami-based Ford, a frequent contributor to Sport Fishing, frequents South Florida/the Keys and has, over the years, built an impressive collection of tarpon action shots. In this gallery, he shares a large gallery from his extensive Seychelles experience with SF's online audience. You can see more of Pat Ford's work at patfordphotos.com. — Ed.
