Video: Fly Fishing for Mako Sharks

Angler Mark Martin tells all about fly fishing for makos, including his hook up with an 800-pounder.


This video is part documentary, part action-packed fishing show, as angler Mark Martin tells about his love for fly fishing for monster mako sharks off California. Featured is the Youtube-famous footage of an 800-pound mako somersaulting and fighting during a fly tournament. Martin has a passion to preserve the public’s ocean fisheries for future generations, though recreational fishermen keeping a mako shark to eat is all right with us. Yep, mako sharks may taste even better than swordfish. Adam Feuerman, of Creative Content, produced the video. Watch it below:
