Doug Olander, Editor in Chief writes in Volume 18, Issue 7, August, 2003 Sport Fishing magazine, “…the waters off a nondescript bluff on the northern Peru coast produced the most remarkable action the world has ever seen for colossal black marlin, abundant swordfish, striped marlin and huge bigeye tuna. No other spot could rival it then: no other spot rivals it now. And it seems increasingly possible that no place ever will.’
The original 16mm color film has all been carefully cleaned, transferred and digitized, with unbelievable clarity and crispness, preserving forever an all time classic moment in time. Without question this is one of fishing’s most historical moments. Baseball great, Ted Williams introduces us to the Cabo Blanco Fishing Club, before heading off the beach, making bait and doing battle with a black marlin weighing in at over 1,200 pounds. S. Rip Farrington picks up the action where Ted leaves of with more spectacular footage showcasing this great fishery in all its grandeur. Cabo Blanco Peru, circa, 1954 this is one you’ll watch over and over again.
