"Film about the annual classic of big-game anglers. What the Kentucky Derby is to thoroughbred racers, the International Tuna Cup Match, Wedgeport, Nova Scotia, is to sports fishermen. They come from all over the world - South America, Mexico, the United States, Europe, Great Britain and many parts of the Commonwealth - big-game anglers who have had many a tussle with deep-sea gladiators. The film goes to sea, right into the midst of the fray, to witness duels between determined men and mighty fish."

"Occasion: International Tuna Cup Match. Problem: to see who can haul in the biggest bluefin tuna. A film of exciting spectacle."
