THE World greatest species hunter, Steve Wozniak, is closing in on catching an unimaginable 1,000 different species of fish.

The 46-year-old who hails from San Ramon, California, has travelled to 62 countries covering every continent bar Antarctica. In the American’s quests for maximum variety he’s also bagged nine IGFA records with a further eight pending.

With 989 species under his belt Steve is agonisingly close to fishing’s equivalent of climbing Mount Everest, running a marathon and swimming the English Channel in succession.
