    This video shows the bait and switch technique used to make the Mako Shark mad so he eats the fly. We could not hook this little Mako but you can see how mad he gets.
    Never set the hook with the shark pointed at you.

    This Mud Shark I put your buddy Kevin Gross on would have shattered the existing IGFA All Tackle World Record by over 14 pounds. I didn't have the heart to kill it.

    I have broken the IGFA All Tackle World Record for Shovelnose Guitarfish fish 11 times. All of them where released. No brag, just a fact.

    BIG Mako we had a shot at this year on the fly. 16 wt and one of the largest arbor Orvis reels made, drag BUTTONED and he whooped us good and snapped the 80lb fly line core on his first big backflip. Sorry for poor quality as the GoPro died right after the eat.. I had already been filming alot of the shark and we failed on 2 other hooksets lol..

    Redington film I helped shoot off my boat this summer, these are the standard "fly fishing" size makos. Once they are up over the 200lb range, it gets pretty tricky to actually land them on true fly gear. But crazy fun just to see and hook them on the fly!!
