French fi­shing guide An­tho­ny Gué­nec spends his win­ters wor­king in thte Bi­ja­gos Ar­chi­pe­la­go for the Acun­da fi­shing camp. On a day off fi­shing with his 13 year-old son Ma­théo, An­tho­ny spot­ted a huge cobia crui­sing near the sur­face. Ma­théo tea­sed the fish near the boat with a pop­per, then dad­dy pre­sen­ted a big strea­mer to the fish. The fish im­me­dia­te­ly took the fly and the bat­tle las­ted over an hour. The mons­te­rous fish wei­ghed an im­pres­sive 42 ki­los (92.5 pounds) and will pro­ba­bly be the new world re­cord on a fly rod.
