I taped that show and was pleasantly surprised that he was using a flyrod. It is going to be interesting how he fares on a revisit to India to catch this mystery fish. Keep in mind, he has fished for days to catch one fish that is a monster.

I watched him catch a Taimen on a fly rod last night. I was impressed!
