Unofficial World Record!
For your info this WR application to IGFA was not accepted due to the fact that my custom rod had a moveable reel seat which can slide up and down the handle and IGFA were not convinced that the reel was not more than 6 inches from the butt – a requirement in their rules… So even though I did land the fish and had two witnesses onboard, its back to the drawing board… next time I need to make sure the real seat is fixed… more on this on the magazine articles page.
Below Capt Dave with his pending IGFA WORLD RECORD fly rod caught yellowfin tuna on 10kg tippet, the yellowfin weighed in at 51.58kgs beating the previous record of 48.6kgs. Fight lasted 1 hour 42 minutes. Well Done Capt. Dave

13 May Yellowfin Chaos!
After a slow morning and taking a while to locate the tuna we had an awesome run with a 92kg yellowfin being boated – thats over 200lbs!!! What a magnificent weather day with calm flat seas. Looking forward to the next trip!
“With 12h00 approaching and no fish in sight I was a bit worried about the prospects of the day. However, you proved to worthy of the rumours doing the round that you are the best guys at finding tunas when we hooked 15 tuna within 3 hours. Job well done to you and Nick. Thanks guys. We’ll be back!” Rudi
