World Record Certified By IFGA
Word comes today that the IFGA has certified the 385 pound lemon shark caught by Dr. Martin Arostegui as a world record. This makes it the heaviest documented fish ever caught on fly tippet. Dr. Arostegui seems to make a hobby of world record catches.
"A little background on Arostegui; last year the retired Miami-area physician received a lifetime achievement award from the IGFA for over 100 world record catches through 2004 and this past March took home a grand slam of honors at the IGFA World Record Achievement Awards ceremony for the most world records in 2005 in saltwater, freshwater and on fly.
