Blistering Lowcountry heat can't dissuade when it comes to tarpon fishing

Unless you work outside every day it is hard to handle the furnace-like heat that is a part of living here in the Lowcountry from mid-July on through September. For example, yesterday I had a few things to do in the yard and in less than two hours I had to switch out my T-shirt three times. No matter where I went, there was nary a breeze and the humidity had to have been near 90 percent. Maybe it's because I am getting just a bit older, but whatever the reason, I have adopted a somewhat Latin lifestyle of chilling out during the heat of the day and coming out later in the day when it is a bit more bearable.
