Extreme angler Jakub Vagner lived up to his nickname of Big Fish Man by catching this giant freshwater stingray that weighed as much as fully grown lion. <br />
<br />
Jakub, who presents a Discovery Channel show in big fish, hauled the 400lbs ray out of the Mae Klong River in western Thailand after a gruelling hour long battle.<br />
<br />
The 6ft wide stingray was caught so that marine conservationists could tag it and take samples before safely returning it to the wild.
