While fly fishing off the southern coast of Chile on March 28th, American angler Bruce Jackson potentially set the new All-Tackle world record for snoek (Thyrsites atun) with this 7.67 kg (16 lb 15 oz) specimen. Jackson, fishing with a local guide out of the Puma Lodge, needed more than 30 minutes to land the fish after it took the streamer pattern fly he was fly fishing with. If approved, the catch will replace the existing All-Tackle record of 6.46 kg (14 lb 3 oz).
