Catching one of these beautiful predators on a fly rod was practically impossible until the famous fly fisherman and Hall of Fame member Billy Pate caught the first one in New Zealand in 1984. In order to catch the first mako on fly, Billy Pate traveled far from his home in the Florida Keys to find an area that had smaller makos in shallow waters. His first catch was a 65 pounds world record! More recently Captain Conway Bowman discovered a fishery for mako sharks in San Diego California.
