    Some of you may have seen this already, but here is a 5 minute video of my Halibut I caught whilst over with Phill Dale at Skarnsundet Fjordcenter in Norway.

    The film was actually 15 minutes but I cut out the winching parts as it bore's people.

    I would've let it dive a couple more times to tire it out more but after the second retrieval, the hook was looking dodgy. It didn't like the gaff! ;-)

    Well done if you go again make or buy a small flying gaff and tie off before you use.

    You're right, it didn't like the gaff, you didn't look very chuffed when it got off and swam away, think it must be a female fish that one, one prick and it throws a tantrum
