Default Re: Becoming Member of 20-20 Club Can Be Challenge

I caught a 23" rainbow on a size 24 nymph, 6X tippit on the San Juan/NM on my 5-wt. Sage SP (which I understand is not all that unusual a feat there). Your advice re a soft rod tip and a big enough net with flies and tippit that small is well taken. I do think that using too small a rod weight on fish this size will endanger the fish because of the long fight really light tackle requires, however.
