Highlights of the week:

 

Mark was eager to chase the big fish of the Marié. After missing some opportunities on the first few days and landing a couple of mid-sized fish, everything came together on the last day. Mark was casting from a sandbar while his partner was taking pictures of another fish, as he saw his fly disappear. The fight was on, and after doing everything he could to fight the fish, even pulling the line from under the skiff that was by the shore, Mark finally put his hands on his 20 lbs. peacock bass of the Rio Marié! Well done, Mark!

See you next week!
