King of the flats

Fly anglers have been targeting Cape yellowtail (yellowtail kingfish in NZ) off the Western Cape coastline for many years, but few of these fish have been reported caught on foot. It is one of Jimmy Eagleton’s dreams to get one of these fishes from shore on a fly rod and although he’s come close it is yet to happen. When Aussie Fly Fisher posted this vid Jimmy was understandably all over it! When I watched the movie, I couldn’t help wonder what one of those stingrays would pull like on a 10 wt?
