Fly Fishing People: Martin Arostegui

“His first world record fish was caught in the summer of 1994, a 10-pound triple tail on 4-pound tippet near Flamingo in the Everglades National Park. His 200th, also on fly, came nearly 14 years later with a mullet snapper caught in Costa Rica. ” Pete Johnson writes on ESPN.com noting the extraordinary accomplishments of retired emergency room physician Martin Arostegui. Arostegui is the first angler to catch 200 IGFA-certified record fish, including a 385-pound lemon shark, which the IGFA ranks as the largest fish caught on fly tackle.
