Flying Mako Tournament

Flying Mako The flying shortfin mako shark is one of THE most exciting gamefish around. Add a 10wt fly rod and reel and you've got one heck of a day ahead of you!

The Flying Mako Tournament doubles as a fantastic tournament for fly fishermen and women who want to up their game but also as a fundraiser for mako shark research. At the Flying Mako Tournament we believe that makos and sharks in general should be protected. What better way to put them in the spotlight than a catch and release tournament. The funds raised are donated to different research entitie

Fly angler lands enormous shark, but says trying for record not worth killing the fish |

Congrats to Michael Roth for his CPR (catch, photo and release) of a potentially world record shark on the fly! That's the way it should be done! (might not recommend holding a live shark in your lap though!) On Monday we posted a story about a Florida fishing guide who traveled to Costa Rica and caught a 60-pound snook, which is nearly three [...] 09/30/2013

Mysteries of Makos

Great to see Makos getting some love! More research is being done. The world record mako from Long Beach, CA caught this past summer had "sky-high" levels of mercury in it. Catch and release...catch and release! A banner year for makos has let fishermen and scientists study the massive sharks

[03/06/13]   Thanks for your patience on the word about this year's tournament. Unfortunately, due to Conway's TV filming schedule and Captain Dave Trimble's busy schedule we're going to have to postpone this year's Flying Mako tournament until next year. We hope to see you all for next year's Flying Mako Tournament. It'll be bigger and better than before! We'll keep this site updated with more info as it becomes available.

[12/29/12]   Announcing the date for the tournament next week...I know it's gonna be a good one!

[10/22/12]   Working on next year's Flying Mako Tourney...lots of makos, lots of trophy! 08/29/2012
