Off the deep end

What does the editor of TROUT magazine do for kicks on a free weekend?

Chases 400- to 800-pound mako sharks with fly rods off the coast of California with his buddies. Naturally.

Makos eat flies.They run fast. They jump high. They pull really hard. And they can eat you.

Best gear test in the world.

Yeah… it’s twisted. The end of a long evolution in fly fishing that, believe it or not, started with trout for some of us.
