Big Game Legends from Full Throttle Media


Full Throttle Media will soon release a collection of conversations with several of big game fishing's most respected and reverred captains, anglers and crew. We started this project several years ago, but only now felt the timing was right to roll the project out. Several of the most well known participants in this project have passed away since filming. And, to the flame never died in any of them. Those that are still with us carry the mantle. I wish to thank each and every one who helped in this endeavor.
BIG Game Legends is a collection of the most incredible interviews ever shot with some of big game fishings greatest explorers and their first hand tales of heading into the blue. These sportsmen experienced the most superb big game fishing the world will ever see. It is through their spirit of adventure that an industry was born. 
 
Through these interviews we trace the history of heavy tackle big game fishing from its early days in Bimini and Wedgeport, to one of singular defining moments for the sport in Cabo Blanco, to the development of the big game fishing culture in the deep waters off of Kona, Cairns, Madeira and beyond. These far flung destinations were brought to fame by a group of extraordinary adventurers that forged the roots of what would become one of the worlds most challenging sports endeavors. Men who, compelled to do what was considered impossible, began plying the waters for bigger and bigger fish, testing the limitations of endurance and equipment to catch that one fish. BIG Game Legends is the story of these big game anglers, of where and how their journey began, of pioneers who chased their dreams across the oceans and of anglers who still do, hoping for that freight train to enter the spread.
You will meet Alfred Glassell, one of the sport’s greatest pioneer, whose tireless love and contribution to the fishing will forever be the mark by which all big game anglers are measured. George Parker, in his final days, shares his love and enthusiasm for fishing and how the sport shaped his family. Then there is Allen Merritt, one of the greatest fishermen Cat Keys tuna alley will ever know and an inspiration behind the development of todays most revered fishing yachts. Record setting duo Stewart Campbell and Bark Garnsey share their amazing experiences. Roddy Hays, doing what no fisherman ever will again, reveals how a deep passion for the sport carried him to heights unreachable. You will also hear from Peter Bristow, Peter Fithian, Mike Benitez, Marlin Parker, Clay Hensley, James Roberts and many more to come who have left their mark on a culture and an industry. 
 
In telling their stories we are welcomed into the inner circle of heavy tackle big game fishing. These pioneering adventurers are the heart of Big Game Legends and the roots of an entire industry. It is their spirit and sacrifice that formed a culture and created a lifestyle. Big Game Legends is a testament to the desire that all anglers have, in one form or another, for that one fish.

Share the experience, sell the dream...Full Throttle Media! FTM Seth Horne
