New Zealand’s canals have long been known as the Mecca for anglers seeking trout of epic proportions, and fishing guide Seumas Petrie sure knows where to find the giants. He landed the now certified IGFA All-Tackle World Record in the Ohau Canal near Twizel, New Zealand. The catch marks at least the second all-tackle record to come from that tailwater.
Seumas landed the fish in late-2020, but it was only recently finally certified by IGFA. The previous record was held by Otwin Kandolf Check out the post below featuring our friend Garreth Bayliss sight fishing the very canal system where the monster was landed!
