Big Yellowfin Tuna on Bamboo


Two techniques in this amazing fishing video: the occidental, fly fishing, hooks a tuna and has some difficulties to get it onboard. The local, with just a bamboo stick, hooks a huge yellowfin and has it onboard in a few seconds!

“During a recent flyfishing trip to Ascension Island, Local Captain “Noddy” sees a big fish responding to the chum and decides to use his bamboo pole. I hook a nice Tuna on my fly rod, and shortly after Noddy and Paulie lands the biggest Tuna I’ve ever seen.. on a bamboo pole… Weighed in at the pier at 275lb. ”
