Reeling in the Kraken
Ocean fishing can make for exciting sport and fabulous eating, but sometimes the things you catch can surprise you. This video from Talltanic takes a tour of some of the most bizarre creatures that have come out of the deep at the end of a line, from prehistoric relics such as the goblin shark, which barely postdates the dinosaurs, to deformities (see the fish with two mouths and the albino shark with a single cyclops eye) and monstrosities like the 18-foot oarfish. Occasionally, a day on the water nets something decidedly non-piscine, such as an international message in a bottle or a friend’s skull. Indeed, you never know what you’ll come home with after a day of fly fishing.
