Belgian angler Frank Van de Wyer caught this potential new All-Tackle record golden mahseer (Tor putitora) while fishing India’s Saryu River with local guide Misty Dhillon.

Van de Wyer needed nearly an hour and a half to subdue the 19.96 kg (44 lb) fish – which outweighs the current All-Tackle record holder by 7.71 kg (17 lb) – before documenting and releasing it alive.
