If that was an SKA tourney that fish would be worth about 10K.
I can't imagine what that reel sounded like.
Dan is a great guy and one of the guys I will be doing a Yuri trip with once we can get a date.
I had a trip with him planned a couple of years ago and we got blown out, which is highly unusual for him..but it was honkin for at least a week before the trip and when we supposed to go.
Looking forward towards the rod.
