Giant Bluefin on the fly

I don't know how many of you have seen this, but I just noticed.

<!--http--><a href="" target="_blank">Captain Joe's flyshop</a><!--url--> web page is reporting that an angler landed a 196.58lb bluefin tuna on 20lb test in 1 hour, 15 minutes on a flyrod recently.

No pictures yet, but they should be some great shots, i'll be checking back pretty regularly.

RE:Giant Bluefin on the fly

Pretty amazing... an it *only* took an hour and 15 minutes to land!

I like the looks of their albie... and the reds too. This fall......
