Have you ever seen a flying mako shark?
The Flying Mako Fishing Tournament is an event organized to promote the safeguarding of mako shark, and the rules are strict: fly fishing only, barbless hooks, catch & release.
Fly fishing but the Mako can also “fly” as demonstrated on this video: a mako shark, estimated 10 feet (3 meters) long and weighs 400 pounds, runs a dozen prodigious jumps out of the water before escaping.
Great moment of excitement for these young anglers: “Yeaaaahhh” “Oh My Gooood” “Holy Shiiiiit”
Alex Beck hooks an estimated 10 ft. 800 lbs. Mako on a Fly, during the Flying Mako, a catch and release tournament, with captain Mark Martin, video by Keith Langford. http://www.sandiegosaltwaterflyfishing.com/
