Congrats on your fish Green Weenie. That's a dandy!
I'm glad the fish was released also. Although it's hard to believe that a fish that big, fat, and old would live very long after being caught on 5x without a net, and then photo'd and measured. But as healthy as it looks, and as smart as it must be to have avoided all that pressure for so long, maybe it is doing just fine, snubbing every imperfect fisherman's fly that drifts past it.
