Have you ever heard about somebody fly fishing for mako sharks? Well apparently it’s a pretty big thing.
People fly fish all over the world for all sorts of fish but typically sharks are not included. Well this video from ChrisNAnderson goes to show that some sharks are not only catchable on a fly rod, but it looks pretty freaking awesome too!
Just wait until the point in the video when this mako finally gets some air. I’ve seen lots of fish jump during a fight with a fisherman, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything jump like a mako.

I always say that one day I want to try to take a Great White on a rod and reel. After watching this video, I may want to up my game and go for it with a fly rod.
What do you think? Do you have what it takes to tackle a shark on the fly? I hope one day I get the chance.
