Our kind of trip!🎣🙌🏼 Roberta Arostegui just returned from Canada with three more potential IGFA World Records. The largest of which was this beautiful 7.71-kilogram (17-pound) chum salmon that may set the new IGFA Women’s 4-kg (8 lb) Tippet Class World Record. Roberta was fly fishing in Chilliwack, British Columbia, and landed the fish after a 15-minute fight.
