Default Fly fisherman catches great white

Good Morning Yahoo!

Check this video of this guy testing out a new Abel saltwater reel who accidently catches this great white.

Interesting video, but I was hoping to see him actually fighting the fish.

It looks like the Yahoo vid link has been cancelled. Here's the news clip from Youtube.

All right, Jeff!

What a rush that must have been on a fly rod. Jeff is one of the friendly faces at Abel, and he is in the enviable position to be able to travel to many places to go after big fish with some of the best gear made.

I'm sure the adrenaline was pumping when he saw what he hooked. What a catch!

Cheers,

VB

I run into Jeff every year at the big fly fishing show in Northern California. The guy loves to talk fishing.

It wasn't mentioned in the video, but Jeff was being guided by Conway Bowman who is the guy to go to for Mako Shark fishing in Southern California. Makos - that's definitely on my bucket list.
