Default Re: Florida keys fly fishing

Ever since I had a jack spool me I have been their number one fan. I was using a Ross BG4 that couldn't do anything against it. When I got down to about 20-30 turns of backing left, I pointed the rod tip at the fleeing fly thief and clamped down on the reel to break him off. This all happened in about 15 seconds. The noise that poor reel made was haunting. As of yet, I never have landed a big one.
