Those tail shots really put those fish in perspective.
That is the good stuff right there. :cool

Never got around to trying the circle hooks. I fished the same fly all weekend, a big black and red seaducer tied on a 2/0 Gamakatsu sc15 with big lead eyes plus more lead wire wrapped around the shank...getting hit by it on the back cast would be a memorable experience.

Plow, I'm not sure what's up with the spots. I had the no spot fish yesterday, Devin had the barely spotted fish, and Barret had a fish a couple of weeks ago with no spots on one side. Apparently some spotless genes have gotten thrown into the mix around here.

Thalweg, those big tails work too. Today I saw parts of my backing that haven't seen sunlight since I put it on. I almost lost my first big fish today because he got me way into my backing and hit a spot where my backing had dug in and basically knotted itself. Luckily he didn't surge hard when he hit that spot and I was able to start regaining line and never let him get that far out again. Devin also had a mishap on the big fish of the day. The fish started running and Devins fly line came out of the stripping basket with a big tangle in it. The tangle caught in the guide of the tip section and pulled the tip section off of the rod. I poled toward the fish to make sure it didn't break off while Devin recovered the tip section, untangled the knot, then got the fish back on reel and landed it.

Believe I would have de-barbed that fucker. Hopefully before the fucker gentleman up front stuck it in the back of my head.
