I bet that was an awesome fight. Were you using a wire leader? For some reason your pic isn't working for me. Congrats on the fish!

I caught a 30" pike accidently while fishing for bluegills on a small river. Somehow landed the pike with 4lb line with a size 10 orange partridge wet fly! Dunno what that pike was thinking!

Good job landing that fish too! Definitely feels like you have a whale on the end! Just praying the whole time, please don't snap it, please don't snap it. haha.

Pics not working for me either.

30" is a big anything! You need to search 'Posting Pictures' so you can show the fish.
