In 1977, Steve Huff and Tom Evans were fly fishing in the sleepy town of Homosassa when they each hooked a tarpon that topped the previous world record. News of the catch spread like wildfire, drawing in the top guides and anglers, all hoping to top the record by reeling in their own 8-foot, 200-pound monster fish.
