  1. This fish was holding in some fast water...about 12 inches deep. I couldn't see this fish but it came up and took my #10 Royal Stimulator off the surface. The fish stripped my downstream about 50 yards. Had to chase. Tripped, fell down and busted my net into 5 pieces. But, landed the fish anyway. Great fight.

  2. Did I help you land it or did you already have it in hand by the time I crossed over?
