GLOBE-trot­ting TV star and world renowned fish spe­cial­ist Jakub Vag­ner re­ally put his strength and skill to the test when he won the bat­tle with this stingray, es­ti­mated to weigh al­most 400lb.

This huge male, mea­sur­ing 1.75m across, took him more than an hour to land dur­ing a visit to the Mae Klong River in Thai­land to as­sist sci­en­tists with re­search on gi­ant fresh­wa­ter st­ingrays.

The star of the hit se­ries Big Fish Man, cur­rently air­ing on Quest, was helped to carry out what he de­scribed as ‘one of his tough­est fish­ing chal­lenges yet’ by guid­ing com­pany Fish­siam, and af­ter cap­ture the stingray was tagged and safely re­turned.
