Ah, thanks Cliff.

I hooked into a monster last night using an october caddis that I had purchased last year from cabellas' (a great big ugly fly). I didn't get him landed as I was in deep water, no where to go and he stripped me down to nothing, ran back at me, and then turned around and snapped me off.

I have never had a fish take so much line so fast - at least I know where he is now.
