    After 8 years of targeting an Atlantic sailfish on fly record, angler Nassim Joaquin has found his magic number. Fishing with Captain Anthony Mendillio and mate Ruben Pena aboard the 48 ft Cabo " Chachalaca" , Joaquin caught and released 12 fish in one day and a total of 18 during a two day period.
    On the first day Nassim caught six fish. just one shy of his own personal record of 7. " We tried to the raise the bar and were almost there but the weather was against us"  he said.  After that day the team knew they were seeing a great bite and tons of bait to hold the sailfish. Still, nothing prepared Nassim for what he would see the next day.

    Good mate Nassim Joaquin has reportedly caught 12 Atlantic sailfish on fly in one day (Feb 1st 2010) fishing with Captain Anthony Mendillo  at Isla Mujeres. This breaks a record held by Joe Zimmerman whom caught 10 in a day   some years ago.
    "Joe Zimmer of Berlin, Maryland, broke the one-day record for Atlantic sailfish on the fly earlier this year. Fishing out of Isla Mujeres, Mexico, aboard the Prime Time, Zimmer was led by Captain Butch Cox to ten Atlantic sailfish on 20-pound tippet and abided by IGFA fly-fishing rules for billfish."

    Nassim has been trying to get this record and his best day before his record breaking day was seven fish. There have been reports at these links Saltwatersportsman & in regard to this news and I will post more here once Nassim gives us the full story. Congratulations Nassim !

    Wild Fires in Australia

    A moment to recognize all those who suffer because of the fires in Australia.

    As a flyfisherman, contributor and fire investigator by trade, I wanted to take a moment to recognize the horrific fires that are raging in Australia. Over the past couple years I have been fortunate enough to develop friendships with some Aussies like Randall and the boys at Carpenteria Seafaris and wanted to let them and all Australians know our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Wild Trout 8 The 30th Anniversary

    30 years ago TU, the US Dept of Fish and Wildlife, other conservation organizations and individuals with deep concern for trout and their enviroments gathered in Yellowstone Park to discuss issues. The International Wild Trout Symposium was born.
    This year sees Wild Trout 8 and although many are missing from the original gathering the passion and drive remains the same. The A.Starker Leopold award is a classic example of how this passion lives on. Marty Seldon a former awardee of the Leopold has penned a very interesting piece on the history of the symposium.
