2016 F3T Selection – Chanos Chanos (Milkfish)

Cpt. Jack Films. Location: Seychelles
Perhaps the most challenging fish to catch in the Seychelles is the fabled milkfish, a turbo-charged algae eater growing to 40 pounds. A team of South African anglers have not only caught these amazing and very secretive fish, but also pioneered the techniques that have allowed these vegetarian and notoriously difficult fish to be caught. It’s hard to accurately describe the sheer speed, breathtaking acrobatics and technical prowess needed to convert a fly cast to a connection with this largely unknown species.
