That was a new experience for sure...

So, haven't got a picture because I had no way to land him, but I took my 9ft 5wt fly rod out this morning chasing bluegill, have a 6x leader with a size 16 psycho prince nymph tied on, feel a little pluck, set the hook, and 5 minutes later I'm staring a very angry 2lb or so pike/muskie in the face, 6x wasn't nearly enough to land him on, and I couldn't gill him because he wouldn't sit still, had to get him with the ketchum tool, boy that sure was fun, I'm going to have to say I'm checking off one of my bucket list fish in exciting fashion...this gear is definitely not made for that lol

Had a 1-2lb smallmouth take that same fly the pike did this morning, he broke me off with some airborne acrobatics, but boy was he fighting hard and absolutely gorgeous...by God I'm going to land one of those things soon
