That there 'tweener' will work all over I betcha. Nice.
I used to use a stripping basket on the Henrys Fork late in the summer to eliminate snagging floating weed pads from snagging my loose line.
The last time I fished the Fork in August I swore I would bring a spey rod to see if the extra length would help me mend out of the weeds.
That's great that you landed that fish.
Just hooking a fish there can be challenging then then the weeds make it that much more so.
