Re: 29.5" Brown from the Watauga 1/17/2006!!!!!!!
Rock Hopper, I landed him on a 9' 4wt T3, the fly was a white cone head zonker (you can make it out in a couple of the photos. I was kind of wishing I had a larger rod after I had hooked him. We didn't plan on throwing big streamers when we went so I only had the one rod with me. Fortunately I had a big enough leader on that I was able to horse him in fairly quickly. The fight, measuring and photos took no longer than 10 or 12 minutes. I didn't want to kill that fish so we really tried to do it as quick as possible.
