    Thank-you to everyone for not being too harsh with me for incorrectly labeling my fish. I feel dumb for making the mistake but know I see what you were all talking about. Someone asked what I caught it on; I was using a 4wt with 6x. I caught this fish on my own variation of an egg pattern (Pearl white), most nervous fight I have had yet on a fly rod.

    I bet it was quite the tussle on a 4wt. Welcome to the forum and no one around here is going to jump on your case for an honest mistake. The nice thing about this forum is we are all (mostly) well behaved and helpful.

    Look out for Hardyreels though, he has a habit of making great threads that are helpful and generate a lot of traffic.

    Interesting, when you described the fish to me I imagined it would be a lot bigger than that... Kidding

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Ha - that was exactly my thought!

    heck of a fish!
