Default Re: Florida keys fly fishing

I used to catch baby jacks in the Miami canals that ran through my college campus. Even the 5 or 6 inchers put up a crazy fight. I hooked onto about a 10-12 incher once. Fought me for about 10 minutes, just pacing up and down the bank, couldn't gain an inch for the longest time. Finally, I thought I had him close enough, grabbed my rod in the middle and stupidly clamped the line with my hand as well. As soon as I did so, he took off and the line snapped. I was heartbroken. Plus he took the only popovics ultra shrimp I had at the time.
