New World Record Carp Landed by Texas Fly Angler

Barry Osborn is no stranger to setting IFGA records, in fact, he holds over 100 world records and even more in his home state of Texas. His latest all-fly tackle record was this decent-sized “fan-tail” carp which measured 73 centimeters (28.74 inches) and was certified last week as a new International Game Fish Association world record.

“The IGFA recently separated their all-tackle length category into all-tackle rod and reel and all-tackle fly rod. I am trying to be the first angler to have the top rating in the all-tackle fly category. I may be the first angler to receive top recommendation for this world fishing category,” Osborn said.

Due to recent changes to IGFA’s catch and release category, Barry did not have to weigh the fish to qualify his catch as a new record.
