In the "Poudre '09" battle, I definitely jumped into first place today with this monster catch. Look at the girth on this baby! Not a pretty trout by any stretch, but man what a fight!
I'm not joking when I say that this fish stripped almost every inch of fly line from my reel. It hit the fly like a ton of bricks and then just ran and ran and ran. I'm actually a bit surprised that the leader didn't snap.
