Record Breaking Yellowfin Tuna Caught on the Fly?
By Tim Romano
Think you landed a big strong powerful fish on a fly rod this year? I'm guessing it probably wasn't as tough as the 128 pound yellowfin tuna a gentleman named Chris Cook landed while filming a fishing movie about Christmas Island.
The fish was apparently caught near the island on a 13 weight rod and beats the current fly rod record by 21 pounds. This of course has to be verified by the International Game Fish Association and is pending confirmation.
