Fly Angler Mike Roth and his World Record Release

Mike sent this picture to me a few week's ago displaying his potential fly caught world record black tip shark.  He was fishing in the Turks and Caicos. He released the fish knowing it was a potential world record. The existing fly rod record for black tips is 77 pounds. This fish crushed that.  Apparently, the photo has gotten around the internet and gone somewhat viral. 

Here is the link from Yahoo. 

Mike has been fishing with me for years. I hope he remembers the little people now that he is famous. You may remember Mike's picture of a bluefish he caught with me in Montauk appearing in Fly-fishing in Salt Waters magazine. 

Nice work Mike!
