Hi

I't stuck at home with an injured foot so I thought that I would share some kite fishing articles.

Kite Lines from 1983 has a discussion of kite fishing in South Africa (Sorry mods contains an old photo of white shark and brindle bass landed on kite gear!)

Kite Lines from 1977 has a general discussion of kite fishing including rigs etc.

and kite lines 1977

The article mentions the 791kg great white which was 3.5m long.
Is this weight accurate?
Fishweights has a 3m white at 411kg.
791kg sounds a bit heavy.

Edit : Shark was weighed by sharks board.
