What Happens When You Hook a Great White Shark on the Fly?

great white shark on the fly

A group of buddies got quite the surprise when they hooked up with a great white shark on the fly. 

For most people that fly fish, there is just nothing else that compares regardless of what you are fishing for. However, the biggest and baddest fish that swims on Earth is the great white shark. Could it be possible to pursue a great white shark on the fly? Well, maybe.

As you are about to see, a freak occurrence takes places as these guys are filming what they thought to be a mako, when it swims into their fly line. Craziness ensues, and then eventually the inevitable happens. It’s exactly what you think would happen hooking into a great white shark on the fly.

As Kameron Brown wrote in the description to the video, they had no intention of hooking the giant shark. They didn’t even know what they had until they saw the footage when they got home. No one recommends pursuing such a fish on a fly rod and it’s obvious the guys in the video knew that.

Regardless, it’s some pretty exciting footage and the dream of many anglers around the world. Thanks for sharing it with us all!
