"Stand Up to A Giant" is Dennis Braid's most complete instructional big game movie; Braid provides the most in-depth instruction on tackle, rigging and technique ever offered to the public.
Filmed on location out of Hyannis, Massachusetts, this movie not only informative, but exciting as well. Fishing in waters as deep as 350 feet, the stand-up expert catches a trophy bluefin weighing 606 pounds. While the struggle and landing of the fish are highlights, the movie goes close-up to show each technical step utilized from specific bait rigging, to bait presentation, connecting Spectra to the reel as well as to monofilament top shot; plus some unique local methods of protecting the line from chafing while battling monster tuna.
Additionally, Braid explains in detail the use of stand-up harnesses and belts for each major line class, noting the proper body position to provide the most drag force on a big fish.
