Pure elation as a sea monster goes on a blistering run... Notice I did not reference a species, I only got back to my fly line (about 80 yds into my backing) when he came off. We think it was a black drum at least 30lbs, or maybe a big red. My Tibor got something in it and the drag knob completely locked, freespooling, so I put the 8 wt Xi2 up and went to my backup BVk 7 with Ross CLA 4 (newfound respect for the CLA, what a reel!). The difference in lifting power between these two is astounding, love my BVK but I was way outgunned against this fish. We did everything right, and it sure was fun, but the Big One got away on this trip...
