WATCH: Fly Fishing For Milkfish In The Indian Ocean


Jacko Lucas, or "Capt. Jack" as he's known on the web, has a unique talent for fly fishing videos. From GT's to taimen, we've posted his fair share right here on The Blitz, but his brand new trailer for "Chanos Chanos" is one of the coolest - mainly because these fish are just downright crazy. 

Chanos Chanos is the scientific name for milkfish, and if you're not familiar with the species you're not alone. They live in the Indian and Pacific Ocean, and until recently, were not targets for fly rodders. I can only imagine what happened when the first un-expecting angler hooked a milkfish and all Hell broke loose. From their tube-like shape to their forked tail fin, these fish are built for speed. One guy in the video estimates he was completely spooled in a matter of 6 seconds ... let that sink in for a second. 

For a fish this big and this powerful, there's only fly reel for the job. The Cheeky Limitless 475 is the ultimate inshore reel for big game like milkfish. With enough stopping power to halt a fish in its tracks and a new frame design for added strength, the Limitless 475 needs to be in your quiver for your bucket list trip.
