Default IGFA approves World Record 20 pound Tippet Fly Rod Class

Pending IGFA World Record
20 pound Tippet Fly Rod Class
Striped Bass 51lbs, 5oz
Richie Keatley of Norfolk Virginia

Richie was fly fishing with Pete Sileo in his 22-foot boat at the CBBT Thursday evening, December 17th. Using a trolling motor to maneuver around the pilings, he placed his own hand-tied 3/0 Clouser blue-tinted fly in front of a school of big boys. Richie’s battle of a life time began when one of those trophies slammed the little fly. After a nerve racking battle, with the fish taking the line around the pilings, and several other "close calls," Richie had the fish boat side within about 30-minutes

According to the IGFA, the largest striped bass caught on a fly (regardless of tippet) is 64 lbs 8 oz

IGFA Approves 51lb 5oz World Record Striped Bass

IGFA Representative Announcement
Dr. Julie Ball, IGFA Representative, Virginia Beach

IGFA World Record APPROVED!!
Male 20 pound Tippet Fly Rod Class Striped Bass 51lbs, 5oz

I am pleased to announce another approved IGFA World Record from Virginia waters!

Richie Keatley of Norfolk was approved today as the newest World Record holder from Virginia. The 51lb, 5oz striped bass he boated on the fly at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel on December 17th, 2010 topped the existing 43lbs, 12oz record previously held by another Virginia resident, Harry Huelsbeck.
Richie was fly fishing in his 22-foot boat at the Bay Bridge Tunnel using a hand-tied 3/0 Clouser blue-tinted fly. After a nerve racking battle and three netting attempts, once again Virginia fishing history was made! Congratulations Richie!!
