Congrats

That fish has reached the "how the hell is that thing head so Big? And so wide?" Status.

After 20 or so inches their heads just seem to take up way more real estate.

I want my leader back!
Heís visiting with the taxidermist at this very moment!
Iíll be honest, part of me was questioning every knot you tied in that thing, and another part of me was thanking god that I had retired that old leader the night before.

Seriously though, after losing a fish of a similar size a few months back I canít describe how good it felt to land this one. I hope I never forget that first loooooong run he took, the moment I knew that this was gonna be one heck of a fight!
I ended up fishing another hour or so. I hooked a few baby browns, but I just couldnít quit thinking about THAT fish. So, I packed it up and called it a day.

I bet Iíve pulled up the photos and the release video over 100 times since yesterday.
