On the stern of the boat was lying what looked like a lump of fish. ’ cried Steve. ’ ‘And that’s half a tarpon on the stern,’ said Peter, looking through his binoculars. 31 P1: TIX/XYZ JWBK524-c05 P2: ABC JWBK524-Knight July 25, 2011 11:57 Printer: Yet to come AMAZING FISHING STORIES It transpired that the boat had landed an estimated 80-pound tarpon and, while the captain was trying to release it, a 12-foot lemon shark had come from nowhere and slashed it in half. Even though the crew were fighting it off with the boat hooks, the shark seemed determined to grab the rest of the fish, although it finally gave up and swam away, leaving about 40 pounds of front-end tarpon on the boat, jagged teeth marks where the tail end had been ripped away.
The mahseer rolled over, its eyes momentarily staring into Steve’s one last time, before it slowly sank away into the reflected moonlight and disappeared. 41 P1: TIX/XYZ JWBK524-c07 P2: ABC JWBK524-Knight August 1, 2011 19:11 Printer: Yet to come AMAZING FISHING STORIES Back at the campsite, the post mortem took place. Saban and Bola had measured the fish at 6 feet, 7 inches, nose to fork of tail, with a girth of 48 inches. ’ Saban sighed, frowned and lent forward into the light of the camp fire.
Stepping into a coracle is a delicate operation at the best of times, but with three grown men, one with a rampaging monster at the end of his line, it seemed an impossible task. The two Indians were brilliant, though, and Steve somehow found himself kneeling down in the coracle with Saban and Bola either side and slightly behind him. They pushed off and were then at the mercy of the river’s flow – and the fish several hundred yards downstream of them. Steve went into a sort of trance, unlike any other fishing experience in his life before that point.
