Back in the day

Many an old timer will tell you fishing was more fun "back in the day" and after seeing this video from the Smithsonian Institute, it might be hard to argue!

This incredible footage from 1934, shows a keen fisherman taking fly fishing toa new level - by capturing a shark from the cabin of the Goodyear blimp!
The black and white video shows a 5 foot long shark caught on the hook of a fishing line and then winched up to the blimp. The 57 second clip, featured on, was filmed in 1934 in Fisher Island in Miami, Florida, America.

Sailfish caught from US Beach

Beach fishermen target some some great species, but Sailfish aren't normally on the hit-list, at least not for Aussie fishers. Take a look at the smile on this young American boy who lands a sailfish from the beach at Seagrove, Florida.

This is the 3rd clip in the series - view the whole 3 part series of a young boy catching a sailfish from the beach here.

Its not clear who is happier, the boy or his dad?

Well done young fellow.

How big was this Marlin? More importantly, how big was the shark that took it?
